Reebok Classic Party
To celebrate and to welcome 2014, Reebok organized a “Classic Party” on the 27th December, 2013, at Black Box, Publika. The main highlight of the party was Reebok’s special collaboration with XU & Joe Chia.
XU, a Reebok ambassador, is the founder of the “LapSap”, Twilight Action Girl and “Mini Compo” Group. He is also well known in the music industry, even among the likes of Verbal of Teriyaki Boys and famous music producer and Grammy Award Winner, Swizz Beatz.
Joe Chia is a fashion designer without boundaries, which has led him to international recognition. Adding to his list of achievements, Joe has collaborated with Shu Emura, G-Shock and Uniqlo. He was also named as “ A pioneer of avant garde fashion scene in Malaysia” by Esquire Malaysia. His latest achievement was marked on the day of the party as one of the ambassadors for Reebok.
