British retailer Debenhams opened their flagship store at Lot 10 last night.
Guest of honour (apart from me) was renowned designer Matthew Williamson with other notable attendees being shoe designer Jimmy Choo, some guy from the British High Comm and the Mayor of KL all rubbing shoulders with the big-wigs of YTL, the owners of Lot 10.
The event kicked-off with a fashion show featuring different inhouse brands paraded by a selection of not unattractive tall,thin girls with really skinny legs.
The champagne flowed freely and there were tasty little snacks served by attentative waiters.
It was a pretty good show but why do they play such loud crappy music? It reminded me of being in TwentyOne on Changkat Bukit Bintang. And it was just as crowded.
After the grand opening of the store we were encouraged to browse and shop but even after the one-off 20% discount,the clothes are still fairly pricey.
At 10pm there was an "after party" on the roof at the peculiarly named Roots nightspot,which I believe included 2 free drinks but to be honest we couldn't be bothered to wait that long and headed off to Gypsy Bar-where the people are a little more down-to-earth than posy fashionistas...
But an interesting night nevertheless.
