Stylish Lunar New Year with Rosie Lai


It's the Year of the Dragon! 🐉 We spoke to Rotator Rosie Lai, former fashion director at Tatler Asia, on her top reservations for celebrating Lunar New Year, and most importantly what inside her rental wish list.

"Growing up in Hong Kong, LNY meant city-wide decorations, night markets and lots and lots of food. It also meant wearing red all week to ring in the new year and bring good luck. Wishing everyone a wonderful and prosperous Year of the Dragon. May it bring you health, happiness and plenty of occasions to rent a fabulous outfit."

Scroll for Rosie's handpicked rentals and restaurants to book to celebrate this year.

Park Chinois

"Dining during Chinese New Year at Park Chinois is an experience—old-world glamour, authentic food with a side of lion dance. Be sure to take a picture in front of their impressive entrance adorned with a life-sized dragon created by botanical artist and By Rotation friend Jake Kuit."

Rent: Solace London, A.L.C, Self-Portrait, Taller Marmo

When attending Park Chinois, Rosie's top rentals are the Solace London's Karla Crepe Dress, A.L.C's Delfina Dress, Self-Portrait's Sequin Gold Dress and Taller Marmo's Nina Dress, all perfect to dance the night away!

Canton Blue

"At the newly opened Peninsula London (few may know that the hotel is originally from Hong Kong!), their restaurant Canton Blue is a feast for the eyes and belly. Every corner is deliciously decorated with porcelain, and takes inspiration from the history of tea traders."

Rent: La Pointe, Solace London, Galvan, De La Vali

For reservations at the Canton Blue, Rosie added La Pointe's feather dress, Solace London's Audrey Dress, Galvan's, and De La Vali's Trapeze to her rental saved folder for the ultimate Black-Tie look.
