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.

Koh said PPB Group Bhd (parent company for GSC) had always been a keen supporter of educational endeavours.
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.
The award-winning models will showcase an exclusive collection of qi pao (cheongsam) by designer Wu Guobin, from Dalian, that will be the highlight of the show.
Apart from that, the runway will also see the parade of Tropical Collection from Zang Toi, Sarimah Adzrina and Justin Oh, The Exquisite Nyonya Kebaya from Butik Ang Eng and Matching Menswear by Key Ng.
