When I received the invitation for Wolftress S/S Collection Launch Event – ‘We Are Warriors’, I knew I must attend.
Not only did the invitation say “Let us take you to ancient China”; which, as a Chinese from Taiwan, it’s very close to my roots. Also, looking at Wolftress’ latest campaign photos, the models’ hair dos reminded me of those ancient Chinese warriors I’m familiar with from watching countless Wuxia (武俠) TV series and movies in my childhood.
Kent and I arrived at the funky warehouse venue in Surry Hills and were greeted with Chinese lanterns hanging outside the front door. We arrived on-the-dot and beat the crowd. This early bird – moi – started with a glass of champagne; walked around checking out the latest collection, which were made with materials hand stitched and dyed in the rural village of Zhoucheng (周城), China. They are made by ladies from the Bai minority group who are currently making this fabric for Wolftress to use in their latest collection.
As guests were arriving, so too were our nibbles. We were treated with mini spring rolls; mini San Choy Bau (生菜包) and fried dumplings to go with the Chinese theme.
Performers were dressed in the latest collection and wowed us with a choreographed dance, followed by a screening of the ‘Wolftress Trails to Ancient China’ short film. They certainly kept us entertained!
“What a great turn out tonight!” I kept hearing people say. Yes indeed, and the energy and the vibe was incredible!
I’m including some of my Instagram photos below and let the pictures do the talking.
Kent found me on the dance floor while he was holding two goodie bags. ‘I guess it’s time to go…’
Thank you Wolftress!!
