Gamechangers – that was the theme of the recent SNOW Gala, organised by UN Women.
This year, $500,000 was raised at the charity gala dinner held at Capella.
SNOW, which stands for “Say No to the Oppression of Women”, was attended by Guest of Honour Ms Low Yen Ling, Senior Parliamentary Secretary for Education and Manpower.
While there was a live auction during the dinner, those who wanted to donate could also go online to make their purchases of auction items.
Proceeds raised from the gala goes to funding the committee’s work to empower women and girls in Singapore and the region. This year, 20 per cent of net proceeds will go towards building safe spaces for women and girls in refugee camps across Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh.
The event was attended by sponsors, socially-conscious executives, entrepreneurs and philanthropists who all came together for an evening of glamour, gastronomy and goodwill.
Dress code of the night was “Dare to be Different”. Check out all who dressed to be different as they showed up to support UN Women’s causes.
Opting for a red power-suit amidst a crowd of floaty gowns will surely make you stand out from the crowd.
The traditional Hanbok made a lovely appearance too.
Self-expression was also a subtext that night with attendees adorning gowns in star prints and metallic sheens.
Sporting the iconic Chanel Tweed blazer with a pair of leather pants, there is no better way to make a statement.
From sequins to peacock-feathers, the guests really brought their A-game in accessorising and vamping up their outfits.
Not only were the outfits that night embodying the theme of ‘being different , the hairstyles were too.
