Hong Kong's M+ museum underwent a dramatic transformation into the venue for this year's Tatler Ball

The Tatler Ball has long been Hong Kong's most exclusive black-tie soirée, and has brought together the city's most notable and influential individuals together under one roof since 1995.

Held for the first time outside a traditional ballroom, and sponsored by HSBC Global Private Banking, Chopard and Hennessy, the 2021 Tatler Ball took place last night at the brand new M+ museum in Hong Kong's West Kowloon Cultural District against the backdrop of the Victoria Harbour and the city's glittering skyline. A world-class contemporary art space, Hong Kong's M+ museum opened to great fanfare earlier in 2021, and the Tatler Ball was the first large-scale gala event staged in the space.

The museum's main hall—the venue for the night—was dressed minimally, with a monochromatic design palette complemented by non-traditional neon lighting to add drama to the room, give a polished industrial feel and celebrate the building's scale and architectural beauty

Take a closer look at the museum's transformation for the 2021 Tatler Ball below:
