Swiss watchmaker Piaget came up with a hip way of raising funds at its recent benefit for Heart to Heart at the Watermark restaurant.

Before the event Piaget sent guests black T-shirts designed by Lanvin's Alber Elbaz, along with a note saying each person who turned up in one would earn an extra donation from the hosts to the Wai Yin Association's fund-raiser for the Sichuan earthquake fund. Guests geared-up for the event included Piaget's Asia managing director Dimitri Gouten, Wai Yin members Monica Chan Fat-yung and Loletta Chu Ling-ling. Also in attendance were James Louey, Betty da Silva, Tony Cruz, designer Johanna Ho and actor Sam Lee Chan-sum.
