The Gucci Autumn/Winter fashion show is always the most anticipated fashion event of the year here in Hong Kong, and this year there’s no exception. From worrying over the weather to figuring out what to wear, and holding up our hunger for days in advance so that we can squeeze in our size six dresses, and hopefully, weigh a little less on our six-inch stilettos, plus the facials, the manicures and the massages – this party is huge and the invitations are the most exclusive ones to come by. Luckily for me, mizzshopaholic was on the front row with my ‘auntie’ friends, my ex-boss at Hong Kong Tatler Magazine, former PR Director, Olivia Lee-Davies and, PR guru, Lelia Chow, for this year’s fashion show which took place on August 19th at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. I love hanging out with my boss, I gotta tell you! We’ve become great friends since we worked together, we laugh and make jokes, she gives me valuable advices, and I have great respect for her. If you can imagine, our relationship is somewhat like Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway in Devil Wears Prada, the good part after the ending that is… but amongst us colleagues, we always thought she looks like Wilhelmina Slater in Ugly Betty - after all, they’ve got the same hot body. Haha! You gotta love her! Another ‘auntie’ that I love to see is Auntie Mimi Tang, Gucci’s Asia Pacific CEO, who is going to be a grandmother in November to a baby boy. How exciting?! I’ve known her since I was 14 years old because her sons and I went to the same high school. As we caught up with her for photo-takings, she told us that there will be a surprise during the night’s fashion show which got us all curious and excited. What it was at the end, as we were all left a bit clueless after the show, was the special appearance of Cecilia Cheung. Okay, hmm… no comment on that but I was surprised for sure! The audience were left in awe as we watched the actress walked up and down the runway which brought a moment of silence to the room. Somehow it was painful to watch her and she carried such a sad face. If you don’t know what’s so controversial about her, you’ll have to find out elsewhere as this blog is not for this kind of gossip. Enough said, all in all the show was exceptional. I’m head over heels for those beautiful and dramatic chiffon maxi-dresses and I’m liking the vibrant 70′s flavour with an array of brilliantly coloured fur collars and fur coats. Sources also say that the two video panels on the side of the venue costed over HK$2,000,000 for one night. Now, that’s my kinda party!
