What: The Great Crystal - Fifty Shades Champagne Ball
Crystal, born in 90s, after 2 years working as marketing manager in private millionaire’s club, she created her own company brand ‘The Great Crystal’ featuring high-end wedding services and event consultancies.
This year she brought the heat of the newly launched novel turned movie ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ to Vespertine in Shanghai. However there was nothing grey about the 8 course menu designed by top chef Larry Smith. One dish more amazing after the other. Favorites were the Foie Gras with melted iberico and black panettone and the mouthwatering chocolate soufflé. 8 paragraphs from the book Fifty Shades of Grey were read by 7 guests including CEOs from different industries during the dinner while Jessica Lee, fashion stylist for Hermes, Bvlgari Roger Viver, Vera Wang sent 8 of her looks down the catwalk designed dinner table.
The guest took a walk through designer Stella Lam´s exhibition of her fabulous dresses when gliding there way up the staircases to the afterparty. Guests were among entrepreneurs and celebrities such as singer and writer, Leorowi (Yang Er Che Na Mu).
Guests were welcomed by a taste of the Black Forest Cake from Pantry’s Best. Followed by champagne in Nimbas and a stunning white and gold fondant birthday cake designed by Genius at Work, Sistine, the founder of GAW Shanghai, that also attended.
Fire show and stilt performance, live music with the drum and sax, a cigar master making top cigars on site surrounded the evening.
We can only wait and see what next year will bring!
Many thanks to Crystal for having us there
