Percept ICE conceptualized the unique Birthday Celebrations of Sudha Reddy which saw the entire city of Hyderabad painted black and gold at the HiTex on November 24, 2018. The gala celebration commenced with a star-studded Red Carpet, hosted by Fashion entrepreneur, celebrity and presenter, Hofit Golan. The entire venue was bedecked in opulent shades of black and gold, and the grandiose chandeliers coupled with elegant reflective bars completed the entire vintage vibe with a contemporary twist. The main event area was set up for an elegant seated dinner with the tables decked in rich fabrics like velvet and organza. Dull gold Dior chairs added the right amount of charm. The centerpieces were designed in a beautiful and abstract fashion incorporating octagonal mirror bases, tall vintage candelabras and gold vases, black and burgundy candles and a vibrant assortment of exotic flowers and fruits, all in the rich color palette of wine, oxblood, deep burgundy, and gold. Complementing this classic décor was the table setup – gold carved show plates, with white and gold-rimmed dinner plates, gold plated cutlery, black napkins and menus printed on handmade paper – the attention to detail was apparent in every element.
The celebrations saw three illustrious international fashion designers – Elie Madi spanning Lebanon to Los Angeles, USA; Joao Rolo from Lisbon, Portugal; and Amato Couture – Furne One from Dubai, UAE present their breathtaking couture lines at the event. The stellar stage event saw entrancing performances by a multi-piece live-band from Europe – Paris Select led by Adi Golan and Philippe Jones. The evening wrapped as a customized five-tier cake made for a special and nostalgic moment as it was theatrically rolled in with a champagne parade.
The event saw a high profile celebrity attendance including Tollywood superstars Chiranjeevi, Venkatesh and Nagarjuna, eminent Fashion Designers and luminaries Neeta Lulla, Reshma Punj, Kazim Ali Navaid Khan, Zeba Kohli, Rajesh Kholi, Jimmy Mistry, Falguni Peacock, Shane Peacock, Krisha and Gautam Ghanasingh, Juhi Godambe, Kailash Surendranath, Maheka Mirpuri, Ramola Bachchan, Krishna Kumariji, Samir Soni, Neelam Kothari, Sheetal Mafatlal, Dalip Tahil and Raghuvendra Rathore.
