WHAT Ambassadors Ball WHEN October 14, 2017 WHERE Kerry Hotel
A record amount—HK$10.2 million— was raised at the Ambassadors Ball for the Design Trust, the grant-funding platform created by the Hong Kong Ambassadors of Design, which was celebrating its 10th anniversary with the 2017 ball. Architect André Fu and graphic designer Adonian Chan were the creative directors for the event, which was held at the Kerry Hotel and attended by Carrie Lam. The live auction was a spirited affair, with plenty of competition for standout lots, including a Takashi Murakami print, a Zaha Hadid chandelier and a Christian Liaigre daybed. After dinner, guests moved upstairs to a Jimmy Choo-sponsored after-party at Red Sugar, where a photo booth, dance machine and the band Chordus Interruptus provided ambassadorial entertainment.
