Work hard, play hard

Ivy Ball

Hong Kong Tatler - - Concierge -

ardi gras is syn­ony­mous with spir­ited pa­rades, out­landish out­fits and rous­ing revelry. From New Or­leans to Rio de Janeiro, Mardi Gras car­ni­vals de­light with mu­sic, danc­ing and a dar­ing dose of de­bauch­ery. Drawing on this her­itage, the or­gan­is­ers have de­clared Mardi Gras the theme of this year’s Ivy Ball. More than 700 Hong Kong-based alumni from Brown, Columbia, Cor­nell, Dart­mouth, Har­vard, the Uni­ver­sity of Penn­syl­va­nia, Prince­ton, Yale and the Mas­sachusetts In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy will throw on their glad rags for the oc­ca­sion, which takes place at the Con­ven­tion and Ex­hi­bi­tion Cen­tre on June 20. Tick­ets are HK$1,380, and fam­ily mem­bers and as­so­ciates are also wel­come. While a prize for best dressed isn’t cur­rently on the cards, guests are en­cour­aged to add some pizzazz to their black-tie best.
