Walking in Jimmy Choo's shoes
Cathay Pacific Discovery, 19 June 2012
FOR MANY visitors, Kuala 
Lumpur is is all about shopping. But
 Jimmy Choo says the streets of the 
Malaysian capital are also a treasure 
trove of local delicacies and culture.
 Born to a Chinese Hakka family in
Penang, Choo studied at London's prestigious Cordwainers Technical College
 and quickly rose to fame, with his shoes
 featured in the pages of British Vogue and
 on the feet of Diana, Princess of Wales.


 After selling his 50 percent stake in his
 company, Jimmy Choo, he returned to
 bespoke shoe-making. Though based in 
London, he still spends a lot of time in
 KL to be close to friends - and great food.
 Choo likes to stay at The Ritz-Carlton 
Residences in the city centre, surrounded 
by shopping destinations such as YTL’s Starhill
 Gallery and Lot 10, and just a street
 away from Jalan Imbi, the centre of KL's 
famous street-snack stalls. He recommends Lot 10 Hutong food court in the
 basement of Lot 10 shopping mall as a
good way to experience the local food scene, as it houses more than 20 eateries.

“In the past, great eateries like this
 were scattered all over, so it was hard 
for visitors to visit them all on one trip,"
says Choo. "We now have this one-stop
 solution and it s so much easier."
When it comes to shopping, Choo 
heads for YTL’s Starhill Gallery. "Each level is 
named after the nature of its products
 or services,” he says. "Pamper Zone is
 a leisure area with beauty services and 
hair salons. The basement is called
 Feast, which has a variety of national
 cuisines. Every restaurant offers something special and whichever place
 you choose, you can order from other 
restaurants at the same time."



Expanding In Style
Forbes, 16 June 2012
Fashion house Shiatzy Chen owned the Taiwan market. So CEO Harry Wang told his chairman father it was time to invade China. The location factor is so important that Wang spends almost half his time on the road scouting top-tier shopping centers across Asia. Shiatzy Chen’s first store in Asia outside Greater China, at the YTL's Starhill Gallery, an upscale shopping and dining complex in Kuala Lumpur, was one of Wang’s recent finds. That store opened in January and did $300,000 in sales in the first month--a stronger start than Wang expected. The early success of Kuala Lumpur has Wang looking elsewhere in Southeast Asia. “I just looked at three locations in Singapore and would also like to open in Jakarta and Bangkok.” The chain also has three stores in Hong Kong and two in Macau.


Debenhams opens in YTL's Starhill Gallery
New Straits Times, 23 May 2012
Hundreds of eager shoppers rushed to the new Debenhams flagship store in YTL's Starhill Gallery here recently to be among the first customers to receive a free Debenhams eco-tote bag and a specially designed Union Jack themed umbrella with a minimum spend of RM250 during the opening weekend.

One enthusiastic shopper said, "I heard Debenhams in Starhill Gallery offers the largest 'Designers at Debenhams' collection in Southeast Asia and I wanted to view the collection. "I have been a big fan of the collection and am delighted that we no longer have to travel abroad to purchase high-quality apparels."

Those present had the privilege to meet Julien Macdonald, the famous British designer who had flown in from the United Kingdom to officiate at the opening and introduce his latest collection, Diamond, during the fashion presentation. Another shopper added: "I have been waiting since 9am to get my hands on the Union Jack themed eco tote bag and mug." Debenhams international director Francis McAuley said, "The response to the new flagship store has been simply wonderful!
