Flowery-patterned cheongsams, Mandarin collars and even a baker-boy hat were pulled from the wardrobe and worn for a 1930s evening at the Clifford Pier venue in The Fullerton Bay Hotel Singapore.
The soirée was a combined celebration marking 50 years of tourism achievement in Singapore (since the founding of the city’s tourism board) as well as hearty congratulations to local winners of the 2014 Business Traveller Awards.
The evening’s theme was apt. Clifford Pier was built in 1933, and became a cherished part of Singapore’s maritime heritage. It was known for its hawkers stalls, which are now wheeled out today for themed events recalling times gone by.
