ON PEDDER CELEBRATES THE NEW GLASS SLIPPER AT A FAIRYTALE LUNCHEON
By: Bridget Barnett
On March 20, 2019, a group of inspiring ‘modern Cinderellas’ joined On Pedder for a fun-filled private luncheon. The occasion? Celebrating fashion’s current love affair with fairy tales, starring the season’s must-have style − the glass slipper.
Hosted at the incredible Tate Dining Room & Bar on Hollywood Road, the event brought together dynamic women including Angel Chu, Christine Fok, Elly Lam, Faye Tsui, Feiping Chang, Justine Lee, Kelly Cheung, Nat Kwan, Veronica Lam, and Yen Kuok. Guests mingled over champagne cocktails, snapped photos in a fairytale-themed photobooth, and indulged in a 6-course Cinderella-inspired menu – complete with fantastical mignardises.
Each guest was presented their very own pair of modern-day glass slippers, housed in a tower of transparent boxes personalised with each “Cinderella’s” name. Featured footwear brands include Amina Muaddi, Aquazzura, Christian Louboutin, Gianvito Rossi, Malone Souliers, Midnight 00, and René Caovilla. Updated in clear fabrics or encrusted with jeweled detailing, the styles pay homage to the hallmarks of Cinderella’s iconic footwear, while feeling utterly modern. Each guest was also treated to their very own modern tiara, created by contemporary jewellery brand, Venna, exclusively for On Pedder. And of course, they all lived happily ever after.
