PETALING JAYA: The KL Fashion Week 2003 gala dinner will see a stream of corporate elites turning up at the Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur on Aug 19.  

Among them will be Golden Screen Cinemas Sdn Bhd (GSC), which has accepted the invitation and purchased the Shantung Silk table priced at RM15,000. 

“We are most pleased to be supporting this event as it is an excellent initiative to raise funds for Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman,” said its chief executive Koh Mei Lee after receiving a plaque with a framed miniature qi pao from Star Publications (M) Bhd advertising and business development general manager Datin Linda Ngiam.

The gala dinner themed Style and Sensuality will take off with a sumptuous eight-course dinner during which 20 top Dalian models will take part in a fashion parade.
