Today was officially the opening cocktail party at Gucci Paragon, which saw the flagship duplex store filled with everyone from high society to press. Besides gathering to celebrate the opening in grand style, guests were also on hand to witness Singapore Tourism Board’s Chief Executive Aw Kah Peng presenting the Paravanda Frida to Creative Director Frida Giannini, a gorgeous orchid hybrid created specially just for her.
Here’s a shot of Gucci CEO Patrizio di Marco and Frida Giannini, posed in front of those lovely orchids.

Yvonne Lim, Dai Yang Tian, Gucci Asia-Pacific CEO Mimi Tang and Taiwanese actor Joe Chang.
Before I get any hate mail, here’s a much larger snapshot of him.
But the highlight of the show (for me, at least!) was seeing Oli Pettigrew in the flesh. Strangely he was also the only person I asked for a snapshot. Yes, I’m a big fan.
Told you I’m a big fan… here’s another of Oli with Frida.
And yes, I had a great time! More snapshots to come…
