Art of the Palate - Special Edition

Art of the Palate walks off the wall and onto the catwalk this October with Brisbane artist turned fashion designer Kristian Williams and his bold creative colours of the Bonita Kaftan collection.

Hosted by Treasury Brisbane Fashion Ambassador Christie Sutherland, herself donned in a striking Bonita Kaftan, revel in an evening of decadent dining, indulgent wine tasting and art with a fashionable twist in the rich surrounds of The Lab. Hear from Kristian as he takes guests through his fascinating journey from Brisbane artist to national fashion stalwart, including a special showcase of the latest Bonita Kaftan collection.

Luxurious New Zealand winemaker Cloudy Bay offers the perfect pairing to the fashion-focused showcase and expertly crafted four-course menu, with Cloudy Bay Brand Ambassador Margaux Brengel on hand to talk guests through the exclusive selection of hand-picked wines on hand.

Kristian’s stunning wall and fashion art will be housed in Ryan’s on the Park and The Lab during the month of October for your viewing pleasure and his Bonita Kaftan pieces will be on display with a special sneak peek of his collection on the evening.

Artist Profile


A Brisbane-born recipient of the Minister’s Award for Excellence in Art in 2003, Kristian’s style celebrates bold colours, with unbridled lines a signature of every collection and one that heralds a revival of neo-expressionism meets high-end street art. On one end of the spectrum, his use of bold colours and violent emotive lines create bold statement pieces, while other works gently explore their quirkiness – almost tongue in cheek humour. Today, Kristian William’s Bonita Kaftans fashion label has quickly become wearable art desired by women across the country since its launch in 2015. Fresh from his Spring/Summer collection launch at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival 2018, explore this latest range at October’s Art of the Palate Special Edition.
