196 Sweet Dreams Bonnae Gokson’s book launch party
Following launch parties in New York and Manila, Bonnae Gokson threw a cocktail party for a select group of friends to celebrate the launch of her latest book, Weddings, Butterflies & the Sweetest Dreams. Monica Wong, Charles Yang and Michelle Ong were among the familiar faces gathered in the Bankside area of Sevva, which had been filled with pink and white flowers from Yvonne Kung’s Rococo boutique. In typical Sevva fashion, there was an endless supply of champagne and cake—including the five-tier wedding cake created for the occasion to anchor the space. Bonnae gave a speech, in which she thanked family, friends and fans for their support, before introducing illusionist Jeff Teo, who wowed the crowd with his medley of tricks. Bonnae’s previous book, Butterflies and All Things Sweet, won three international awards in 2014 and, judging by the number of guests queuing to get their hands on it, her latest offering will doubtless enjoy similar success.
