A pristine white dress inspired by Karl Lagerfeld stole the limelight at the recent Chinese New Year high tea party hosted by designer Carven Ong.

Modelled by beauty queen Miss Universe Malaysia 2023 Serena Lee, the resplendent creation was exclusively designed by Carven Ong for a client who wore the original to last year’s Met Gala in New York City.
According to Ong’s spokesperson, the white, multi-layered dress was based on the event’s theme of “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty”. Featuring a distinctive shirt collar on the bodice, the black and white dress also included painstakingly hand-drawn designs of all 180 pieces of Lagerfeld’s fashionable sketches.
As a tribute to Lagerfeld’s fondness for bling bling, Ong had also incorporated lights into the dress, giving it an ethereal glow and a touch of glamour.
Ever the impeccable host, Ong and his team pulled off his CNY high tea party with aplomb; roping in the support of various sponsors and giving his guests ‘ang pow’ redeemable for their fashionable purchases at his boutique.

Ong also unveiled his showcase of Chinese accented apparel to herald the upcoming CNY celebration. Vibrantly coloured materials adorned with intricate embroidery drew the eyes and induced fashion-conscious guests into purchasing his designs for the festive season.

Aside from the plethora of local tea treats, they also sampled freshly brewed coffee by new local brand, byNanas. Guests didn’t leave empty-handed as they were proffered goodie bags in appreciation for their attendance.

Tropical Allure is the theme of Hilton Kuala Lumpur’s Mid-Autumn Festival packaging series this year.
In collaboration with local fashion designer Christy Ng (top pix above), the hotel is touting Ng’s rounded faux leather bags adorned with a hibiscus print – a proud tribute to Malaysia’s national flower in Crimson Red or Royal Purple.

Trimmed with gilded zippers, the statement-making mooncake boxes can be transformed into trendy cross-body bags with the addition of a handbag strap which is sold separately.
Each of the gift box bag can hold 4 pcs of baked mooncakes priced at RM168. The Snow Skin Mooncake Package retails for RM178 (4 pcs per set) while ardent durian lovers may take a shine to the Heavenly Gold Package (RM280), comprising 4 pcs of Musang King snow skin mooncakes.

Fashionistas can also buy the Hilton KL X Christy Ng’s Tropical Allure designer bags at RM148 each. An optional Tropical Allure Handbag Strap is available at RM20 each.

Signature Chynna Rose

At the launch of Tropical Allure, the Chynna Restaurant team demonstrated how
Chynna Rose — Hilton KL’s signature mooncake this year is handcrafted.

Also known colloquially as China rose, the hibiscus takes pride of place in the form of hibiscus jam inside the lavender-hue snow skin mooncake. The floral jam’s subtle tanginess balances the rich creaminess of the mooncake’s filling of ginseng-infused lotus paste studded with almond nibs nicely.

In keeping with tradition, an array of classic baked mooncakes (all halal) with five classic fillings is also available at RM35-38 each. Popular snow skin variants such as Blue Moon (snow skin amaretto lotus paste with blueberry cheese mooncake, RM35 each) and Flower Drum (snow skin lotus paste with soft custard egg yolk, RM35) are also making a comeback.
The entire range of baked and snow skin mooncakes are now sold at the pop-up store in the Hilton KL’s lobby until 13 September 2019. Similar pop-up counters can be found at Pavilion KL (23 Aug-12 Sept), Mid Valley Megamall (22 Aug-13 Sept) and One Utama Shopping Centre (29 Aug-12 Sept).
