At the end of May, DA MAN invited the most beautiful people in the city and beyond to celebrate the magazine’s 8th anniversary party at Otel Lobby, Jakarta. Coming all the way from the United States were Versace Eros fragrance model Brian Shimansky and Jean Paul Gaultier fragrance model Kaylan Morgan. The evening’s festivities were made possible by Swiss watch brand Tudor, which surprised the audience with a wonderful door prize of a Tudor Ranger timepiece. Also supporting the fashionable party were Italian leather house Il Bisonte, fine spirits and liquor Absolut Elyx by Pernod Ricard, and luxury watch retailer INTime, among others.
The glamorous evening of DA MAN’s 8th anniversary party was unmistakable, given the gorgeous guests dressed up to the nines. DA MAN picked six men, two of whom would receive special gifts from men’s shirt expert Adamist, quality denim brand G-Star RAW and luxury batik pioneer Parang Kencana. On the stage, David Dam, a top contestant from “The Voice of Holland” season 5, belted out a classic Motown number, along with a spirited selection of upbeat songs. Seen enjoying the great moments were Dimas Beck, Raphael Maitimo, Anggun C. Sasmi, Adinda Bakrie, Titi Rajo Bintang and many more.
The highlights of DA MAN’s 8th anniversary party aren’t limited to the loud and ostentatious. On a separate note, DA MAN held a silent auction that benefited Azzura Solar, a charity organization dedicated to providing affordable solar energy to poor areas in Indonesia. The auction involved a bid for rooms at a select list of splendid hotels in the country, namely Alila Seminyak Bali, Amanjiwo, Amanwana, The Ritz-Carlton Bali and Four Seasons Resort Bali. This kind of charitable auction has become an integral part of DA MAN’s annual anniversary parties.
