WE ASIA PACIFIC | Hong Kong | DRESS FOR SUCCESS

 
"Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman"” 

-– Coco Chanel.
 
Our WE Asia Pacific Chapter held a "Dress for Success" networking event on Thursday 14th January at the BNP offices in Hong Kong. It was a great start to the new year and a fantastic evening with just over 50 participants from a wide range of industries in Hong Kong.
 
Leading image consultants Loveit presented on how to create an external image that matches both internal personality and one that is memorable for all the right reasons. They shared insights on styling and discussed the importance of first impressions where appropriate attire and professionalism help to convey the right persona. Attendees at the event were further invited to a complimentary 90-minute style consultation by Loveit and many participants are now looking forward to this personalized session with the consultants.

Melissa Petros, Hagar Hong Kong's Executive Director, also gave a thought provoking presentation on the work of Hagar, a truly inspiring and leading organization which restores the lives of women and children in Afghanistan, Cambodia and Vietnam that have been torn apart by human rights abuse. Melissa shared a touching story on one particular survivor and her journey to recover and rebuild her life with Hagar’s help. Hagar detailed how image, amongst other skills, is an important part of their role in helping people transform their lives and be received differently by society.
 
Many thanks to everyone who attended this fantastic evening. Your support is greatly appreciated and we look forward to welcoming you at our future WE Asia Pacific Events.
