A ticket to the event can range from $30,000 to $275,000!

We at S|LC look forward to the first Monday in May every year when the event is showcased to the world. We love everything about this event and it is a ‘dream’ to one day create it. Everyone can dream, right? We are inspired by the amazing fashion and red carpet... not necessarily red, it is usually an amazing custom-made carpet that links to the concept of the event. Then there is the exhibition which is curated in such an incredible way, there is nothing like it anywhere in the world.
