Remember this blogpost and contest which I ran a few weeks back?
As one of the official bloggers for Kronenbourg 1664's L'aperitif Fashion, I shared the launch of Kronenbourg in Malaysia in that blogpost as well as the contest whereby one lucky reader wins 2 invitations to the French fashion event at The View.
Fast Forward- Ta-da!!
Whisked off to The View at G-Tower
I love this place. It's an open-aired bar up 28 stories in the air with a magnificent view of the city
Glad that Kronenbourg chose this place as it is sophisticated, classy and jives well with what their event is about!
Oooh the glorious Petronas Twin Towers in the background :D 😀
This time round, I brought along a guest with me to the event.
Meet my plus one for the night. my housie Pamela 🙂
She's actually my childhood friend-turned-housie 🙂
'Cept the fact that we hardly (if at all) ever talk in high school lol
Housie Pam and I at the L'aperitif photowall 🙂
Showed the way in by the usherettes
Even more elaborately dressed usherettes
Kronenbourg 1664 in their various packaging
Pam and I enjoying our Kronenbourg 1664 😀
Catching up with some friends Dennis & Fay
With my fellow ex-redhead, Linora 🙂
With Fateh whom I met at a barbeque beach party some months back
(My weird expression is a result of an expression refraining from pulling an
even weirder expression as Mike tried to rob me of my fedora!)
Funtimes and silly moments never stop with Kronenbourg 😉
Before we knew it, the event kick-started with a warm welcome by the MC and speeches by Carlsberg Managing Director Soren Ravn & world renowned luxury label designer Dato' Professor Jimmy Choo
Josiah Mizukami was the MC for the night 🙂
Models unveiling the design by Gallo by Thian
Introducing the design of the Kronenbourg bottle
by the official designer of L'aperitif fashion Teresa Thian
Closer look at it 🙂
Sucha sleek and chic design for a French beer bottle methinks
The VIPs and celebrities on stage making their special appearance at the event
A design from Gallo by Thian in the display window
We media were then ushered to a private zone whereby the sneak preview of Gallo by Thian's live mannequin show was held. It features her Spring & Summer collection for 2012!
Ssssoooo cuuute! They were *actually* mimicking a real gardening routine
The first of its kind and inspired by Kronenbourg 1664's French Art of Pleasure, L'aperitif Fashion was launched with the unveiling of Gallo by Thian's concept designs by lead designer, Theresa Thian 🙂
Well-known for her chic, feminine and elegant designs, the design combines vintage with elegance; reflecting French sophistication. A bold fashuon statement that is seductively French infused with Malaysian elements
Theresa Thian and her models showcasing the designs
LOL candid photo of me snapping photos of the fashion show (while still drinking Kronenbourg LOL)
and Josiah grinning in the background
The VIPs, Theresa Thian, the models and the fashion mentors & icons of Kronenbourg's L'aperitif fashion
Watched the lovely and adorable live mannequin show, mingled with the crowd and sipped on more Kronenbourg draught. Too fun! Glad I bumped into many familiar faces too 🙂
International model Amber Chia of GUESS fame and I
Dato' Professor Jimmy Choo OBE (Order of the British Empire) and I
Just like my fellow Malaysians, I'm so proud of Dato' Jimmy, you have no idea!
Malaysian-born shoe designer hailing from Penang Island (hello, homeboy!) of Jimmy Choo couture fame – EST 1996 – is now based in London running his self-named luxurious designer shoe label, Jimmy Choo.
He has hand-crafted shoes to high-profile clientele such as the late Princess Diana and red-carpet celebrities across the globe. One shoe would cost at least RM3500 in my currency! To date, he has 140 stores in 32 countries worldwide.
True story, bro
Haha enough gloating about how amazing he is!
Kronenbourg certainly made the right choice in appointing him as the mentor in the L'aperitif Fashion.
Way to go!
So much excitement 😀
And now it's time to chill by the balcony over some (more) drinkies and good food
Pam and I by the glass balcony
Couldn't decide which one was better 😀
Aaaaaaaaanyway, it was free-flow for a quite a number of hours so we just couldn't stop sipping the goodness of Kronenbourg. Pam and I both liked the Kronenbourg 1664 Blanc better due to its sweet, cidery after-taste!
The Blanc version is the one on the left
But my guy friends prefer the original Kronenbourg 1664
Perfect way to unwind on a Thursday night
Amazing free-flow of draught & bottled Kronenbourg, fashionable crowd, tapas food, picturesque sky-high bar, so much catching up and camwhoring with my friends & fellow partygoers 🙂
Let the pictures speak for themselves!
Candid shot of Fay and I

He has continued making waves in the dubstep scene and house tracks locally too
Await an exclusive interview, dear readers! 😉
Anyway, housie Pam and I stayed at The View till past midnight. Kronenbourg's definitely had it going
So much going around to leave so early just yet, hey?
Totally unrelated photograph but this beer rack in spirals at The View bar caught my eye
Oh before I forget, I'd like to thank photographers Jaz Khai (the unwatermarked photos belongs to him), Vince Khoo and Feroze Roman for their photographs.
Thankew for the lovely photos 🙂 I didn't bring my DSLR to the event due to some unforseen circumstances 🙁
Thank you Kronenbourg, for a wonderful Thursday night out
That being said, congratulations on a successful L'aperitif Fashion launch in Malaysia!
