In a heartfelt speech, Founder of THE ONE David Harilela emphatically announced “I will continue to dedicate every single day of my life to THE ONE – a charity that I believe truly offers solutions and help to selfless individuals in the hope that we can feed one more child or save one more soul.”
THE ONE Ambassador and International Action Star Donnie Yen Ji-Dan graciously told guests “It is not the amount of money that you have that makes you able to help those in need, it is simply a matter of wanting to do good. I am honoured to be a part of this great cause.”
Award donor Peter Bennett, founder of The Peter Bennett Foundation, which has donated US$50,000 to each of the remaining three finalists, also gave an inspiring speech hailing each and every finalist as “the real heroes of the world.” He added, “I hope like me, that you are all inspired by these incredible achievements and stories, and leave here today thinking a little bit about what more we can do”

And that is why I say, I am a student and I’m still a student and I am still learning from them. I thank you all so much”
Donations continued throughout the evening with several generous individuals making personal donations to each of the finalists and to THE ONE Foundation. All proceeds raised will go directly towards THE ONE Award prize money for 2015 onward, as well as towards an Emergency Fund for past finalists/winners who may need further help.

There are 20 women from all walks of life participated in the project, including Lynn Xiong, Janet Ma, Anina Ho, Winnie Young, Cindy Ko and more. Though Janet could not make it to the event, with her numerous experiences in shooting, the camera fully captured her toughness, tenderness, and sexiness. While Lynn expressed her affection and passion towards the video, ‘The black and white film accentuates my elegance, and I’ll definitely treasure it as a special souvenir from ANTEPRIMA!’ The 20 videos reveal all the possibilities of women—their charm, tender, determination, mysterious, and experiences, simply echoes with the wide selection of the season. ANTEPRIMA Fall Winter 2013 Collection is inspired by the Mother Nature, which plays around with talco, navy, khaki, and olive, that certainly relaxed the atmosphere and slowed down the pace of life of all the guests. ANTEPRIMA models also demonstrated women’s rhythm and grace with their every move and walk in the stunning outfits from the latest collection.
ANTEPRIAM has paid special attention to the settings for this important occasion. Kary Kwok, Art Director of ANTEPRIMA 20th Anniversary Video Art Installation Project, considers ANTEPRIMA as a brand that highly emphasizes on its style and character, over its trendiness. Kary truly believes women of any occupations, generations and styles could truly be themselves and distinctly one of a kind through their unique chemical reaction with ANTEPRIMA. The twenty videos are a tribute to twenty outstanding women, twenty life journeys, twenty stories and twenty characters – they work and play; laugh and cry; love and live. ANTEPRIMA strongly believes trends are ever changing, but not one’s character.
To witness the evolution of ANTEPRIMA over the 20 years, A “Moments” area has been set up for the day. One can walk through from its debut logo, its first Wirebag ever, its first flagship store, campaign images, fashion shows, signature lines and crossover collections, and truly experience ANTEPRIMA for what the brand stands for.
ANTEPRIMA Fall Winter 2013 Collection features the mild and stunning colors from the nature, such as greens of a forest, golds on a beach, reds of a sunset glow, together with the timeless black that bring women fashion to life. The designer’s ingenuity is shown by using strong contrast and uncommon mix and match of texture: gentle wools or satin, accessorized with shining beads or swishing fringes. The mid and maxi, or A’s and T’s, highlights female’s slender figure with its precise lines.
Established by IZUMI OGINO in the early nineties, ANTEPRIMA is the first Italian brand created by a Japanese lady to be spotlighted on the Italian catwalk. Synonymous with quality and femininity, ANTEPRIMA is a product of a Japanese woman’s aesthetic sense that is well supported by precise craftsmanship.
