A glittering night celebrating fashion excellence was the highlight of the Mercedes-Benz Stylo Fashion Grand Prix 2014.
THE crème de la crème of Malaysian high society attended the final night of the Mercedes-Benz Stylo Fashion Grand Prix 2014. Guests were dressed to fit the theme: “Who is Gatsby? ... A Vintage Party”.
Ladies in flapper dresses and men in white suits or jackets stood out amongst the crowd. The atmosphere was one of a celebration – and rightly so, as they were all gathered there to pay tribute to some of the local fashion industry’s talents.
The Mercedes-Benz Stylo Fashion Awards Gala took place on March 28 at the decadently decorated Hap Seng Star automobile showroom. Presented by Mercedes-Benz, it coincided with the beginning of the Formula One Grand Prix weekend.
Showcases for the night included designs by Datuk Zang Toi, Bon Zainal, Jovian Mandagie, Iliza Ho and Fairuz Ramdan. Each and every one of them presented bold creations.
Jovian’s collection was inspired by a romantic anecdote. Named Splash of Romance, it featured six looks that resembled a sentimental touch of enchantment and embellished love.
