Starhill Gallery presents A Journey Through Time VIII
Kuala Lumpur, September 12, 2014
Starhill Gallery, Kuala Lumpur’s ultimate city centre destination for lifestyle, fashion, beauty, art and food, is playing host once more to the glamorous A Journey Through Time, Asia’s premier watch and jewellery showcase. Endorsed by the Ministry of Tourism and Culture, Malaysia, the annual event has grown from strength to strength each year, firmly establishing itself in becoming well-known worldwide for bringing together the biggest and most prominent names in the global watch and jewellery industries.
Celebrating its eighth edition, A Journey Through Time VIII will be held from 21 – 28 November 2014 and is destined to be a powerful prelude to Baselworld with rare private collections, first-in-market editions and exquisite pieces from over 125 luxury brands, 20 of which are debuting in Malaysia, being featured during the eight day extravaganza.
Paula Conway, Sales and Marketing Director for Starhill Gallery said, “A Journey Through Time is an iconic event, one that Malaysia can truly be proud of. It is our most elegant showcase and plays a vital role in diversifying retail activities in Malaysia. This is in line with the objectives of the Ministry of Tourism and Culture, Malaysia to uphold the country’s profile as the preferred travel destination”.
A wide array of activities are planned throughout this edition, starting with regional road shows in Singapore, Jakarta, Bangkok, Shanghai, Hong Kong and throughout parts of Malaysia, crafted to build excitement and attract visitors to the main showcase. The main event itself promises to be even more dazzling as the organisers have planned a myriad of activities spanning across three floors within Starhill Gallery; listed as Asia’s Most Beautiful Mall by The Forbes Traveller and mentioned by The New York Times as one of the Top 31 Places to Visit.
30,000 sq.ft of public exhibition space will enable visitors and collectors to preview and acquire the showcased pieces whilst enthusiasts may attend exclusive and educational watch and jewellery talks conducted by specialised experts.
Attendees may also look forward to chic fashion parades, delectable cuisine as well as performances by international artistes at the nightly gala dinners. As there will be much to experience and appreciate, one can also reserve a complimentary guided tour led by watch experts from Starhill Gallery’s very own Watch Concierge.
As Asia’s premier watch and jewellery event, notable brands such as Bedat & Co, Cecil Purnell, Hermès, Omega, Hublot, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Ulysse Nardin, Breguet, Dior and Maîtres du Temps will all have stunning pieces on display alongside Khronos, a multi-brand boutique which is home to a selection of brands. Also present will be celebrated jewellery brands such as Gubelin, Carrera y Carrera, Garrard and Damiani, which is celebrating its 90th anniversary.
Keeping to tradition, the most impressive pieces on display during A Journey Through Time VIII will be recognised and awarded at a grand gala dinner held as a fitting finale to this eight-day affair. The award winners will be selected by an international panel of five qualified judges including the well-known Dr.
Bernard Cheong, who remains the only Asian who has presided over both the Grand Prix d'Horlogerie and the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie.
