MIGF 2008 : Style Rocks!

The Malaysia International Gourmet Festival 2008 - Media Launch

Strange it seems, to have a fashion and style event on buurps.com when all we actually talk about so far are FOOD FOOD FOOD.

Style Rocks was presented by MIGF 2008 and The Melium Group, Malaysia’s leading retail group of international luxury fashion and lifestyle brands. The event aims to highlight that fine dining and high fashion are a natural mix.


On behalf of the Buurps crew, I would like to thank the organizer AsiaReach Events Sdn Bhd for inviting us to Style Rocks!

There I was, right at the end of the run way, little did I realize that the person right in front of me was our Malaysian culinary expert – Chef Wan!

What went on the runway was simply exciting! With high-profile individuals and models, strutting their stuff down the path along the energetic crowd! The Melium Group was showcasing 80 different outfits from its stable of 50 international ready-to-wear and accessory brands.

After the Fashion Show, it was disco dancing all the way. The four world-class DJs that rocked the runway also swept the disco session of its feet with music styles ranging from house, electro, techno, trance, R&B, hip hop and more!

This night wasn’t about food per se but more about fine beverages – 5 individual themed bars were set up to offer Pernod Ricard’s premium champers including Absolut Vodka, Jacob’s Creek wines, Jameson Irish whisky, Chivas Regal and Martell. Then of course, there’s Carlsberg beer being served as well.

From my point of view, Both the people from MIGF 2008 and The Melium Group held a successful event to showcase the fusion of food of the soul : music, drink, dance and fashion!
