KUALA LUMPUR - Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor tonight attended the International Women’s Federation of Commerce and Industry (IWFCI) Malaysia’s charity gala dinner.
She was accompanied by Women, Family and Community Development Minister Datuk Seri Rohani Abdul Karim and IWFCI Malaysia president Datuk Elaine Teh.
The dinner was held to mark the federation’s Global Women’s Trade Summit 2017.
The dinner featured a fashion show as well as an auction, which saw 12 dresses by acclaimed designers Ali Millmodh and Anne Teoh being sold off.
The top tailors from the Beladin sewing school had assisted in making the dresses.
A number of artworks, including one painting created by Teh, were also auctioned off.
Teh said the proceeds from the fundraiser will be used to help the women from the school gain the skills necessary to succeed in the fashion and garment industry.
The school, which was set up and funded by IWFCI Malaysia, teaches poor single mothers professional and business skills, among others.
The two-day summit, which began yesterday, featured leading international leaders, successful entrepreneurs and high-level corporate figures to share their journey and experiences with delegates.
The IWFCI was formed in Melbourne, Australia in 1992.
With a global business network in 12 countries, including the United States, Russia, Australia, China, Singapore and South Korea, it's a force to be reckoned with in the corporate world.
