We recently attended the final night of the Mercedes-Benz STYLO AsiaFashionFestival 2017 on 6 May 2017 at Bangsar South’s KL Gateway Mall with the Scarlet Masquerade Ball – “Beauty & the Beast” and an awards night which was packed to the rafters.

Also show the three (3) photos below with the Panasonic Lumix LX10 and yes the venue was very blue.
