10 Things You Missed At The Hong Kong Tatler Ball 2018
1/10 The Tatler Starship
"Science. Space. The Future." was this year's theme for the Hong Kong Tatler Ball and we transformed the Grand Hyatt Hong Kong into an intergalactic venue complete with space grass, custom chandeliers and ever-changing cosmic video installations in the ballroom.
2/10 Red carpet arrivals and Facebook Live
Over 375 members of Hong Kong society, many from our Tatler 500 list, showed up in their gala best, including Ming Ho-Tang, Adrienne Hui, Peter Woo, Feiping Chang and more. Take a look at our red carpet arrivals gallery and relive our Facebook Live feed with our fashion director Justine Lee.
3/10 The Macallan bar and trolley
As guests arrived at the cocktail reception, they caught up and mingled around the illuminated The Macallan bar. The Macallan trolley came back towards the end of the evening during the after-party to keep the good vibes going.

For the first time ever, Impossible Foods' plant-based meat was served as a main course at a black-tie event. Over 60 percent of the Hong Kong Tatler Ball guests opted to go plant-based this year, proving that the future of food could really be vegan.
