Before the day of Silence swept across the Island, we hosted a warm gathering of friends and patrons to introduce the phenomenal Spanish designer, Celia B.
The event was held against the evening rain showers that had only moments ago cooled down the Bali streets.
Celia is devoted to sourcing colourful printed textiles from all over the world that not only have cultural significance but make you happy with their vivacity and the understanding that they are unique one-off pieces made with love, not en masse. The kaleidoscope of colour and explorative motifs made them an instant favorite - SOUQ was abuzz with bright and gleeful conversation about the extraordinary pieces.
It was very special to have Celia with us as she talked to everyone about her collection and design methods as well as sharing her bold styling tips. And thanks to the culinary expertise of the SOUQ kitchen we all enjoyed giant green Sicilian olives marinated in orange and parsley, crostini with parmesan mousse and slow-roasted organic tomatoes and triangles of our famous leek tarts. Coupled with campari, rosemary and aranciatta rosso cocktails and spiced rum, lime and coconut punch, the evening was scintillating for all the senses.
Watch this space as we host future events to showcase extraordinary and unique talent from across the globe.
