The introduction of the KARL LAGERFELD Tower, to comprise a hotel and branded residences, sets an unprecedented move as the first KARL LAGERFELD Hotel in Southeast Asia.
It will occupy The Sail Melaka’s prestigious Fashion Tower, which will be the first of its kind in Malaysia. The endeavour is part of a series of transformative initiatives led by Dato’ Leong Sir Ley, Chairman and President of Sheng Tai International. It is also set to establish Melaka’s position as a vibrant and thriving Fashion City in the region.
“Making Melaka a centre for fashion, while leveraging the city’s uniquely rich heritage and culture, is our vision. Our long-term goal is to not only nurture local talent, but also welcome global investments, creating a wave of opportunity and prosperity in the country. We’re delighted to have KARL LAGERFELD and their forward-looking ethos on board with our plans for the future,” said Dato’ Leong.
The groundbreaking announcement was unveiled during an exclusive event, attended by esteemed dignitaries, industry leaders, and regional investors. The event which took place in the spectacular Encore theatre in Melaka was graced by the presence of the Chief Minister of Melaka, YAB Datuk Seri Ab Rauf Yusoh, and Pier Paolo Righi, the Chief Executive Officer of KARL LAGERFELD who flew in for the event recently.
