On May 3, over 540 inspiring entrepreneurs, business owners, and guests came together at the Shangri-La Hotel for the second annual CRIB Ball 2017, organised by the social enterprise Creating Responsible and Innovative Businesses (Crib). Honouring the trade route known as the Silk Road, the theme of the night was “The Empress’ Journey” which gave guests a chance to dress up to the nines and try their hand at interpreting the sartorial styles of ancient China, India, Persia, and Arabia.


The night kicked off with an introduction of the night’s lineup and dance performances that entertained guests. A live auction was also held, giving guests a chance to bid on lots such as accommodation options by Afini and other luxury items. Along with the night’s entertainment, the ball held a competition for the best-dressed guests of the evening, which saw L'Officiel's very own squad girl, Paige Parker, and Mehtab Ahluwalia taking the crown. Even with the style stakes set high, guests feasted on a fusion-inspired inspired four-course dinner crafted by the Shangri-La Hotel, which included Miso Foie Gras, Thai Rice Noodles, and Basil Chili Panna Cotta. 

It wasn’t all fun and games, though - the evening was also an opportunity for the Crib founders to shine the light on the beneficiary charity, EmancipAction. With the aim of providing assistance to the young women and children who have been abused and exploited in the commercial sex trade, it was certainly a night filled with a good cause.
