In collaboration with Exes Studio and A Cut Above, Prestige and Gubelin Jewellery hosted a regal evening to unveil the 25 portraits in line with the Silver Lining charity campaign at Gübelin Boutique in Starhill Gallery Kuala Lumpur. Among the prestigious guests who graced the exclusive preview of the project were His Excellency the Ambassador of Switzerland Michel Winzap and his wife, Marina Winzap.
As the night settled in, the ceremony began. The celebrity photographer Patrick Low of Exes Studio, the brains behind the benevolent effort, shared his views on the campaign. Unfolding his passion for social responsibility, Low also shed light on the many techniques he used to create each three-dimensional portrait.
Datin Winnie Loo, who is also the co-founder of Silver Lining, and Tania Lee took the stage to thank the 25 participants for their generous gesture. Representatives of the homes informed the guests that the funds received will be channelled to address the plight of the children.
After the toast, the portraits were revealed and it was clear that they were nothing short of extraordinary. Each guest was handed a special 3D glasses to view the project. As promised, the photographs came to life as they take on a dimensional form. As the crowd were admiring the pictures, Prestige spoke to one of the participants, Dato’ Choi Wei Yee, Managing Director of Facework Aesthetic. “I believe service to humanity is the best work of life, thus I will try to partake in various charities and corporate social responsibility projects whenever the opportunity arises,” she says. She also adds that the idea of gathering 25 women to contribute to the society prompted her interest to be a part of the cause.
