The JinJuu opening was by all counts a who’s-who of the Hong Kong social scene. Launched with a bang, celebrity chef Judy Joo’s new modern Korean concept was a truly a night to remember. DJ’s played until the early hours, and the relaxed atmosphere meant the VIP guests could let their hair down and enjoy the night.
3. Calvin Klein Jeans party
With superstar performances by Justin Bieber and Jay Park, it is no wonder the Calvin Klein Jeans event was one of the biggest parties of 2015.

The Hong Kong Cancer Fund Ball is always a spectacle to behold, but this year, the theme of ‘Once Upon a Time’ might be the best one yet.

The fairytale evening ended with HK$1.7 million raised for cancer research.
5. amFAR Gala
Tickets to the amFAR Gala hosted by Shaw Studios were one of the most sought after this year, as the people of Hong Kong vied for the chance to meet Victoria Beckham, Paris Hilton, Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Gwyneth Paltrow, who attended the event alongside local celebrities such as Wincy Wong, David Tang and Kim Robinson.

6. Davidoff Art Basel cocktail party
Art Basel is in itself one of the highlights of the social calendar with countless parties to accompany it.

Dita Von Teese danced her signature sultry style and Michael Wong performed for the crowd at the Grand Hyatt hotel.
7. Landmark Boutique Boulevard
The Landmark’s ‘Boutique Boulevard’ is one of Hong Kong’s finest luxury shopping spots. So when in May they invited VIP guests and fashionistas to experience the luxury brands at their best, they turned out in the masses. Pop star and fashionista Rita Ora walked the red carpet along side Victoria Tang, Coco Lee and Michele Li, before getting up on stage to perform. The in-store experiences gave guests a new appreciation for fashion and was hands down the biggest event of the year.
8. Veuve Clicquot “Yellow is the New Black” party
The Veuve Clicquot ‘Yellow is the New Black’ was a party in celebration of the unique. Victoria Tang, Hing Chao, Bonnae Gokson and Zing were treated to the fine champagne stylings of the iconic name at Armani Privé in May. The idea was inspired by the ‘black sheep’ - the one who dares to be different and is a trailblazer for others. Select guests were invited to design their own sheep that will be placed around Hong Kong as a symbol of their individuality.
