The Swank turned up the heat at its spring/summer 2005 collection fashion show.

The show, featuring designers such as Givenchy, Kenzo, Roberto Cavalli, Sonia Rykiel and Christian Lacroix, took place on the spacious 38th floor of Three Pacific Place in Admiralty.

About 250 guests and fashion enthusiasts attended, and the venue was decked out with jungle decorations.

They enjoyed delicacies such as baby abalone in cucumber cup and prawn with cucumber salsa.

Guests watched the show while lounging in velvet-draped chairs, with candles and African drums adding to the atmosphere.

Among those attending were the Swank Shop's owners David and Judy Hong, Susan Sng Kwong-wah, Manolo and Chitra Chellaram and Valerie Wilson Trower.
