Time flies so fast! It felt like only yesterday when we celebrated the release of our first Hanger AW09 issue last year. The launch of every issue is certainly a celebration for us at JUICE towers and we just had to celebrate the launch of our highly anticipated SS10 issue. Held on the 33rd floor of Menara Pan Global at Luna Chillout Bar the party was set against the KL’s beautiful skyline with views of the Twins and KL Tower.
By 8pm excited guests started to fill up Luna to sip on the wide array of fashion-themed cocktails mixed by Absolut, Martell and Chivas (our personal favourite was the ‘Miu Miu Miucca’ but it was oh so hard to ask the bartender for one) and lots of candy true to the theme ‘Suck My Candy’ where guests came dressed in pretty pastels and candy coloured hues. Hostest with the mostest of the night celeb fashion blogger Joyce Wong aka KinkyBlueFairy entertained the party by introducing the magazine and the fashion show that featured Reebok and Vans’ entire SS10 Collection that was styled by none other than Hanger contributor and stylist extraordinaire Calvin Cheong. The models walked over Luna’s pool on a custom-built transparent runway for that extra flair while JUICE DJ Quest 2008 champion DJ Anowl entertained with his durrty’ selection of Dubstep tracks.
Hanger SS10 cover girl Azura showed a different side to her and took over the decks after a long hiatus with an energetic house music set that really got the crowd going. My, we sure spotted quite a few familiar faces in the crowd that came to support Hanger. Spotted in the crowds were Joe Flizzow, Arabyrd, Serena C, MizzNina, Noh from Hujan, Azwin Andy from Estranged, Melissa Indot, DJ Goldfish, DJ Blink and DJ Bunga from Twilight Actiongirl to name a few while on the fashion front Irene See from fashion label Chic Yamada, Justin Yap of multi-brand store MateriÃ©l, Yasmin and Cho from PU3, Eleanor Ng from Kitsch boutique, Michelle from Muffstit and Sueann Chong of Tongue In ChicÂ were present. Makeup artist to the stars Khir Khalid and Ming Wong, and fashion designers and stylists Cris Yong and Allien Gan, whose work also appears in this issue of Hanger, were also among the attendees. We sure had a great time at the Hanger SS10 launch, and we’d like to show our love to everyone who came for their massive support!
