To commemorate its seventh year anniversary on 7 March, L’Officiel Singapore threw a lavish party that certainly lived up to its name as a high-end, international fashion glossy.
Held at Singapore’s premier shopping destination ION Orchard, the space outside the mall was transformed into a sophisticated cocktail area decorated with two open bars, a DJ deck, a larger-than-life photo wall and a blown-up cover of the magnificent March 2014 issue.
By the evening, the area was swarmed with more than 450 guests, which included local celebrities from actress Dawn Yeo to fashion icon and aesthetician Dr. Georgia Lee. L’Officiel Singapore also had the honour to host distinguished guest Ms Laurence Beau, First Secretary of the French Embassy to Singapore.
Hosted by TV-personality Angelique Teo, the crowd grooved to the beats of local jazz vocalist Dawn Wong and W Hotel‘s resident DJ Mr Has, while enjoying premium champagne courtesy or Perrier Jouet, and succulent canapes by Preparazzi. VVIPs also got a glimpse of seven specially curated catwalk looks from the world’s biggest fashion houses, including Burberry, Dolce & Gabbana and Marc Jacob, at an exclusive exhibition within the mall’s ground-floor atrium.
At the party, social media star Yoyo Cao was announced as L’Officiel Singapore’s ambassador and regular columnist from the April issue onwards.
“We are the first magazine in Singapore to work with an It girl. Yoyo, who has 46,000 followers on Instagram including Rihanna, will be contributing to L’Officiel Singapore every month as an extension of her stylish Instagram fashion diary,” says Managing Editor Jumius Wong.
To cap off the celebration with a bang, a 2m long anniversary cake in the figure “7” was unveiled in the presence of all acclaimed guests and event partners including DRGL and Repetto. VVIPs also walked away with their own copies of L’Officiel Singapore’s celebratory, 424-page March collector’s issue.
