Appropriately themed 'Absolutely Fabulous', guests were the creme-de-la-creme of the society with many distinguished people thronging the party area, enclosed by Melium boutiques such as Boss Hugo Boss, Alain Figaret and M Stores.
The fashion show kicked off with 15 Malaysian 'celebrities' (some of them are royalties and were considered celebrities too. Since when royaties became ones?), starting with Ning Baizura donning a cocktail dress from Custo Barcelona, followed by Chef Wan in Rock & Republic jeans, Elaine Daly in Hale Bob dress and many more. Other celebrities include Johnathan Putra aka JP (model-turned-Channel V VJ-turned model again) donning Just Cavalli, Camelia in K by Karl Lagerfeld, Tengku Afzan (daughter of Tengku Aishah of Pahang, like I care who the fuck you are?) in Custo Barcelona and Soong Ai Ling dressed in Hale Bob.
After the 'warm, playful' catwalks by the celebs, KC Yap, who was the Head of Communication and Relations of Melium Group, launched the (true) models down the catwalk in M Store brands - Y-3 by Yohji Yamamoto, Play Comme des Garcons, Just Cavalli, Rock & Republic, Fred Perry Laurel, K by Karl Lagerfeld, Hale Bob, Custo Barcelona, McQ by Alexander McQueen and Tom Ford Sunglasses.
After the finale, guests were welcomed into the M Store and entitled for extra 20% discounts for all items until the 2nd of December.
I targeted a pair of Rock & Republic jeans with gorgeous tone and hind-pocket detailings, cost about RM1982 per pair. SO cantik.
We were also offerred Moet Chandon champagne, which we refused though I looked around and saw some familiar Malaysian celebrities who were 100% Malay Muslim (at least by birth) sipping away glasses after glasses of Moet Chandon.
Note: Melium Group was also the one who brought in Moet Chandon champagne, one of the finests in the world, which costs around RM400-500 per bottle.
And I got a chance to immortalize that moment with its President and my long-time (may I say) idol, Dato' Farah Khan. She was the one responsible bringing in posh labels under her company, like Emilio Pucci, Maubussin , Aigner, Boss Hugo Boss, Emernegildo Zegna, Tod's, Stuart Weitzman, Gianfranco Ferre, John Galliano, D&G, Marchesa, Vera Wang Lavender, Herve Leger and recently Yves Saint Laurent, along with food franchises Dome Cafe, Yo! Sushi and Aseana Cafe and Bar.
Long live Melium and Dato' Farah. Yay!
