Despite the impending arrival of super typhoon Mangkhut, the highly anticipated Hong Kong Tatler Ball kicked off the city’s social season in style with a celebration of prominent figures of society. VIP guests, including Cathy Lee, Peter and Bessie Woo, Yuri and Julia Milner, Tung Chee-chen and Harriet Tung, Ronald and Johanna Arculli and Timothy Fok walked the red carpet into the future—to the year 2118, to be precise.

The evening, sponsored by The Macallan, Chopard, Fancl and the Global Group, saw the Grand Ballroom of the Grand Hyatt transformed into a futuristic arena reflecting this year’s theme: “Science. Space. The Future.” Guests arrived at the cocktail reception eager to see who else had secured a seat at the party of the year and who would be honoured in the annual edition of the Tatler Awards.
