OPEN­ING ACT

Hong Kong Tatler - - Faces -

Af­ter much cham­pagne, caviar and chat­ter, the doors opened to re­veal a ball­room lav­ishly dec­o­rated by florist Solomon Bloe­men, who paid homage to the evening’s theme with a spec­tac­u­lar ar­ray of or­chids ar­ranged around globes of golden chrysan­the­mums con­trast­ing with smoky mercury vases. Solomon’s in­spi­ra­tion came “from the pure white­ness of the Pha­laenop­sis orchid, which has the most per­fect, shim­mer­ing tone that shines from within.” As guests took their seats at the ta­bles they were treated to an open­ing bal­let piece, en­ti­tled Torn, chore­ographed by the crit­i­cally ac­claimed Allen Lam and per­formed by Hong Kong Bal­let alumni Eriko Ochiai and Mike Wang.
