British tailor Hackett London celebrated the opening of its flagship Hong Kong store in October, but held another party last Friday to unveil its huge LED screen.

The screen, on the façade of its store in Causeway Bay's Hysan Avenue, measures 20 metres tall and spans a whopping four floors of the building. It cost a cool HK$10 million and took more than six months to make.

A bevy of socialites and celebrities attended the unveiling ceremony amid the festivities last week. TVB actor Moses Chan Ho paired up with actress Annie Liu Xin-you to cut the ribbon alongside Hackett London executives.

Many guests brought their better halves, with socialite couples including Davis and Melody Chan, Otto and Tisha Chan, and Stephen and Deborah Hung. Fortune-tellers entertained guests with their predictions for the new year.

Moses Chan said he spent Christmas with his actress-girlfriend Aimee Chan Yan-mei and gave her a "very heart-warming" gift. Actor Andy On Chi-kit revealed he might surprise his girlfriend Jennifer Tse Ting-ting with a marriage proposal this year. Guess it won't be so much of a surprise now.
