Supported by Swiss watchmaker Corum and the United Nations Refugee Agency, the Sze Women of Hope Fashion Show saw bold, billowy garments designed by Pearly Wong and sewn by refugee artisans from Pakistan and Myanmar.

Guests ran the gamut from UNHCR representatives Richard Towle and Brian Gorlick to restaurateur Lynn Siew.
