Dazzling Metal Couture by Manuel Albarran Comes to ONYX Bangkok




Maleficent Costume Designer To Provide Fantastic Stage Costume Designs for the First Time in Asia


World-renowned artist Manuel Albarran, famous for his fabulous “metal couture” design for international models, singers, and performers, introduces his stunning club show for the first time in Asia at ONYX Bangkok.  The performance incorporates dancers from the world's clubbing capital, Ibiza, Spain, who will appear three times per day after midnight on every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from now until 9th April.




Spanish artist Manuel Albarran is an expert in metal couture design and is widely admired in the world’s fashion arena.  To create his fascinating futuristic effects with historical references, Manuel combines metals, leathers, fabrics, feathers, woods, and many other materials for his collections. 


The designs reflect an outstanding mixture between art and fashion.  He has worked closely with many world artists, actors and actresses to create their costumes in film making, and recently for Angelina Jolie in her film, “Maleficent”.  He has also created costumes for video productions and elaborate stage shows, and has designed custom pieces for artists such as Beyonce, Madonna (Super Bowl 2012), Rihanna (Russian Roulette), Lady Gaga, Black Eyed Peas, and more. 


His highly conceptual designs have led him to work with the top contenders in fashion, advertising and editorials, including Isabella Blow, Nick Night, Nicola Formichetti, Georgia May Jagger, Cara Delevingne, ID, Dazed And Confused, Vogue, Givenchy, and Lavazza.



The show at ONYX will be hosted by Charlie Cult, a Talent Agent, Creative Director and Artist Manager who is a well known figure in the global entertainment industry.  “We are so excited to offer the show for the first time in Asia.  Combining a variety of first-class experiences together, a professional dancer team which was assembled at the world’s clubbing capital in Ibiza and matched with the fantastic designs by Manuel Albarran, we have brought the world’s greatest artistry in costume design to ONYX.”

Manuel’s creative shows are exclusively presented at premium locations around the world and have been internationally acclaimed by audiences astounded by the new age of art and out-of-the-box fashion.  ONYX Bangkok was chosen as the first venue in Asia for his production due to its readiness as the first truly Global Super Club in Bangkok.  Well equipped with the most technologically advanced audiovisual system, guaranteed by D&B Audiotechnik, which incorporates a high-definition LED display and a roster of world-class DJs from all corners of the globe, ONYX offers the most luxurious clubbing services, including The VIP Zone by Grey Goose® where discerning punters can enjoy a pulsing night out with a little extra luxury. With a great capacity of 2,500 people, ONYX Super Club is set to take Bangkok’s famous party scene to the next level with its seductive mix of style and sophistication.



Promjak Sanitwong Na Ayutthaya, CEO of ONYX said, "ONYX is the first Super Club in Thailand using a digital audio networking sound system to perfectly provide a full scale clubbing experience at world-class standards for Thai clubbers.  Hardly found in other venues, the technology brings best-of-the-best clubbing facilities bursting with light and sound. Albarran's club show at ONYX is the first ever dance performance in Asia to introduce his new-age costumes through a fabulous presentation and art form. This positions ONYX and RCA as a new upscale nightlife destination of Bangkok and Asia and we have plans to invest in and upgrade ONYX to become a premium venue of the global clubbing community lifestyle”
