Attending guests were treated to a plethora of sumptuously-curated experiences, including an exclusive tasting at Michelin-starred Marea, a one-of-a-kind edible art installation by Janice Wong, and a rare demonstration at Pierre Marcolini chocolate boutique by the chocolatier himself.
The celebration included a ritzy scene during which guests and models were photographed by David LaChapelle and Tommy Ton. Alicia Keys then gave a stunning live performance and sang many of her greatest hits.
The renovated mall, located in the most vibrant shopping destination in Shanghai’s Jing’an District, spans a total area of over 270,000 square meters and houses more than 100 of the world’s most pre-eminent fashion houses.
