It was a star-studded celebration at the grand opening of the new Versace Hong Kong Central flagship store. The event was hosted by artistic director Donatella Versace and CEO Jonathan Akeroyd, who were joined by guests of honour David Sek-Chi Kwok, the managing director and CEO of Shanghai Commercial Bank, and Taiwanese actor Chang Chen.

 Guests clad in their Versace filled into the double-storey boutique, which featured traditional Italian architecture and Fior di bosco marble and brass elements, alongside a contemporary ambiance.

 To commemorate the occasion, Donatella herself released a limited edition mini Palazzo Empire bags studded in silver Swarovski crystals. A fashion show of the fall winter 2017 collection was also an opening highlight for the high profile guest list.
