Official website of the Prince Waldemar princely family of Schaumburg-Lippe-Nachod: http://www.schaumburg-lippe.org . Prince Mario-Max, Prince Waldemar and Princess Antonia Schaumburg-Lippe fervently admire the timeless, poetically-powerful and demographically diverse designs of renowned fashion designer Sue Wong.
SUE WONG gowns personify the universal Goddess Energy that resides in each and every woman. Flattering and lyrical, timeless and modern: SUE WONG gowns radiate a royal magic, drawing on mystique and seduction. When a woman puts on a SUE WONG, her majestic essence is awakened and an emissary of beauty is born.
This magical evening included performances included popopera singer, the peerless Michael Peer, Serbian bassist, composer and singer Djordje Stijepovic, Maria Elena Infantino, who resurrected Edith Piaf (aka the “little sparrow”) in a soaring anthem of poetry, Josh Moreland who rocked the house and 12-year old Angel Ng, who certainly lives the concept of protégé and sang with a voice that truly lived up to her name. The energy spiraled into a fever-pitch pool-side fire-dance performed by Clarinda Morales.
Esteemed guests were additionally enchanted by sampling the recently-launched SUE WONG Eau de Parfum, which binds all things SUE WONG into one unique fragrance: romantic, alluring, sensual, timeless, and elegant. The fragrance and Art Deco bottle were designed by Sue Wong herself. It is currently exclusively available through Atelier SUE WONG in both 50ml and 100ml bottles. As Sue insightfully shares: “The SUE WONG Eau de Parfum is sensual, beautiful and intoxicating in a very exotic floral way; yet hypnotically feminine. This fragrance is befitting for a true Goddess; a woman who connects with her royal essence and her Feminine Divine”. Beauty is a powerful healing agent and is synonymous with the SUE WONG mantra of Beauty ~ Magic ~ Transformation. I felt the reaction of Sue’s powerful mantra as I wore a sparkling black gown of hers which was full of sequins feeling fully transformed.
