MOEP’s soft launch in Kuala Lumpur, ‘Haute Couture Reimagined’, honoured international design talents at Mandarin Oriental, Kuala Lumpur. The full-house fashion event fêted an extended guest list: VIPs flew in from different parts of the world, while the evening kicked off with a bang when famed celebrity hosts, TVB actor and radio DJ Bob Lam and actress-model Sarika Choy, took centre stage. Guests were also entertained and treated to a wonderful visual display of dresses designed by MOEP’s atelier.
THE ART OF GIVING
The dress, which took more than 300 hours to make, was snapped up for RM68,888 by the highest bidder. Proceeds benefitted Dignity for Children Foundation, a non-profit organisation that empowers underprivileged children through quality education and care, aiming to break the poverty cycle and positively transform their lives and the communities around them.
