Chi Chi Von Tang. You See It, You Buy It
The view is from Nobu Kuala Lumpur on the 56th floor. The sun is slowly descending into the horizon as cocktails and canapés made their way through the room. The stylish VVIPs are mingling, brimming with anticipation. The guest list includes Marion Caunter, Joe Flizzow, Sona One, Danielle Graham, Tasha Shilla, Datuk Kelvin Tan, Kim Raymond, Keith Foo, Deborah Henry, Ferhat Nazri-Aziz, Debbie Goh, Shir Chong, Carey Ng and Thanuja Ananthan. Inside a private room, guests are surrounded by photographs of women from Burmese tribes – taken by National Geographic photographers Jens Uwe Parkitny and Noelia Madiedo. The show opens with a traditional tribal bamboo tattoo artist making an appearance accompanied by a woman dressed in facial and body tattoos that are often found in the Chin Women of Myanmar. Strength and inner beauty of the tribal women that mirrored the photographs are projected into the room by the powerful solo performance, before the unveiling of the latest collection from Singaporean fashion label Chi Chi Von Tang – The Burma Collection.
