Love by De­sign Am­bas­sadors of De­sign Ball

Hong Kong Tatler - - Soiree -

This year’s Am­bas­sadors’ Ball at PMQ saw a whop­ping 300 peo­ple from high so­ci­ety in at­ten­dance. Held an­nu­ally by the Hong Kong Am­bas­sadors of De­sign, net pro­ceeds from the fundrais­ing evening will ben­e­fit the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s mission of en­cour­ag­ing and nur­tur­ing cre­ative ven­tures in Hong Kong and through­out the re­gion. In par­tic­u­lar, this year’s ball will also ben­e­fit the newly launched De­sign Trust, a grant-mak­ing plat­form to ac­tively ac­cel­er­ate the cre­ative de­sign and devel­op­ment of mean­ing­ful projects. Crit­i­cally ac­claimed designer Joyce Wang, who spe­cialises in luxury hos­pi­tal­ity and res­i­den­tial de­sign, added her spe­cial touch to the decor and pro­duc­tion de­sign of the event. Ti­tled Sus­tain­ing Time and spon­sored by Omega, the ball brought a fo­cus on sus­tain­abil­ity and the time­less her­itage of de­sign. An auc­tion con­ducted by Christie’s as well as mem­bers of the De­sign Trust man­aged to raise HK$5.5 mil­lion for the cause. Stan­ley Sun, Yvette Tang and Sylvia Tang were seen en­thu­si­as­ti­cally par­tic­i­pat­ing in the bid­ding.
