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.
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.
