Yet another really classy fashion party came to past, attended by beautiful folks over at Rootz KL a couple of weeks back. It was the Passion For Fashion 2012 By Johnnie Walker & Kronenbourg 1664, a glamorous celebration of everything stylish, and yours truly was there just soaking in the experience.

The invitees that night comprised of all the who's who in the local fashion and film industry, hence I was rather intimidated by all the fashionable people that night. Everyone came in decked in their best, sophisticated and all.

Passion For Fashion 2012 was also the night to present the awards for outstanding individuals in their fields who had used their influence in the fashion world to make a positive impact and give back to society. Of course, amidst all the fanfare, we had our fair share of Johnnie Walker and Krononbourg 1664 which was basically free flowing the whole night.

In the midst of it all, there was even a fashion walk in between, featuring models decked in Kronenbourg and Johnnie Walker's colours. They did walk a tad too fast along the walkway, hence I did not manage to snap too many photos of the models, Safe to say, check out the two photos I managed to snap below.

Well, it was a blast, with great music, beautiful people, and a night of good Johnnie Walker and Kronenbourg drinks. I for one missed the previous installment of Passion For Fashion, but this round I can say it definately was the place to be seen at if you're in the local fashion industry.
