An Oscar Evening in Seattle – featuring Franc Vila and de Grisogono jewelry
– Jon Zhang
As the Academy Awards ceremony was happening in Los Angeles, Seattle had its own simultaneous Oscar party. It was held in Hotel 1000, with the proceeds benefiting Reelgirls – a charity organization that empowers young girls to direct their films.
It was a fun event.
Starting with the awesome ice sculpture
Inspirational and unique pieces for an inspirational evening –
Franc Vila Quantieme Chronograph (Annual Calendar Chronograph) with moon phase – a composite of steel and titanium that hugs the wrist and wears very well with the suit.
de Grisogono Buccero Zucco ring in diamond and blue sapphire.
Live interview on the red carpet with Connie from Spotlight Seattle
she’s interested in the world of fine watches, and the new business model that resolves around education and building relationships.
… in particular, she seemed to be intrigued by the Franc Vila that I wore, and wanted a closer shot for the video camera – you don’t see this every day in Seattle, don’t you Connie? =)
Quite a bit of over the top dresses.
