It has already been a year since the Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong opened doors and the world's tallest hotel celebrated its one-year anniversary in high-flyer style.

More than 500 guests turned out for the celebratory party on Tuesday, which took place in the Ritz-Carlton's Ozone bar, 490 metres above sea level.

Pierre Perusset, general manager of the hotel, said at the event: 'The sky is the limit at the world's highest hotel.'

Guests tasted a selection of Asian tapas and Japanese specialties made by Ozone's chef de cuisine, Bryan Chin, as well as signature cocktails.

Local designer Vivian Luk, who was formerly an apprentice with the bridal couture queen Vera Wang, showcased her latest collection at the event, including a few numbers she wore for her own wedding last month.

Models trotted down the runway clad in the evening gowns and jewellery worth more than HK$470 million from Graff Diamonds. Johnson Li, an eight-year-old pianist and protege of maestro Lang Lang entertained guests during his 15-minute recital.

Soon you will be able to connect with the Ritz-Carlton on social network sites, as Perusset revealed that a Facebook page will be launched before long.

As part of the anniversary celebration, the hotel is offering additional dining and spa benefits for its suites package.
