DATO' FARAH KHAN, HEAD HONCHO OF MELIUM GROUP, MALAYSIA'S FINEST AND BEST PURVEYOR OF COUTURE AND PRET, REVEALED HER 3 COLLECTIONS ON FRIDAY 25 NOVEMBER 2011 DURING MELIUM GALA NIGHT.

AS EXPECTED, HER 3 COLLECTIONS---FK, FARAHKHAN.COM AND HER MAIN LINE FARAH KHAN----MET WITH A RAPTUROUS RECEPTION. THEY WERE THAT AMAZINGLY WONDERFUL!

AS EXPECTED, THERE WERE ONE GUEST TOO MANY. NO, MAKE THAT 100 GUESTS TOO MANY BY THE LOOK OF IT! THIS WAS VINTAGE FARAH KHAN EVENT---EVERYONE FOUGHT FOR TICKETS JUST TO GET A SEAT ON THE THIRD OR FOURTH ROW. NEWBIES WERE PERFECTLY HAPPY TO STAND AT THE BACK ON THE TOP ROW WHICH ACTUALLY AFFORDED A GRAND, BIRD'S EYE VIEW COME TO THINK OF IT.

AS FOR THE FRONT ROW, WELL, THOSE ALLOCATED A SEAT HERE IS TESTIMONY HE OR SHE IS A SOCIAL PILLAR OF THE STRONGEST STANDING. I OF COURSE WAS GIVEN A FRONT ROW AND I EVEN TOOK A PHOTO OF MY SEAT WITH MY NAME ON IT JUST IN CASE YOU CANNOT BELIEVE THIS.

THE VIP GUEST WAS THE SENIOR PRINCESS OF PAHANG HH TENGKU PUTERI SERI LELA WANGSA PAHANG TENGKU TAN SRI HAJJAH MERIAM BINTI SULTAN HAJI AHMAD SHAH OF PAHANG. SHE WAS ACCOMPANIED BY HER HUSBAND DATO' SERI TAUFIC OZIER THE BUSINESS TYCOON FROM LEBANON WHO IS LEADER OF ONE OF LEBANESE MOST POWERFUL TRIBES.

TENGKU MERIAM'S DAUGHTERS ALSO ATTENDED.

OTHER VIP GUESTS WERE PRINCESS DR BECKY LEOGARDO, TAN SRI OTHMAN MERICAN AND HIS WIFE PUAN SRI SYLVIA, FENG SHUI AUTHORITY LILLIAN TOO, PUAN SRI GNANALINGAM AND A LONG LIST OF KL'S MOVERS AND SHAKERS PLUS VERY BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE LIKE MAGGIE WILSON-CONSUNJI THE DESIGNER OF WANDERLUST FROM MANILA, NIKI CHENG FROM NEW YORK, LING TAN THE SUPERMODEL FROM NEW YORK AND 2 HOT MALE MODELS FROM LONDON JONO TUTTY AND TOM MAYNE. THE LAST I SAW OF THESE TWO GORGEOUS HUNKS, THEY WERE LEAVING ESTATE AT HILTON DOUBLETREE, HAVING BEEN ENSNARED BY 2 WOMEN. SHAMELESS!

I CAN GO ON AND ON ABOUT DATO' FARAH KHAN'S COLLECTIONS BUT A PHOTO SPEAKS A THOUSAND WORDS IN EVERY LANGUAGE.

In case I forget, The Melium Gala also featured Melium's other starry brands Pucci and YSL.

First, the pre-show drinks sponsored by Kronenbourg 1664 the classy French beer made for fashion shows and galas as Kronenbourg is the upscale and trendy version of Carlsberg which is a world best-seller mind you.
