It was Lederhosens galore at ASMALLWORLD's annual bash, this year hosted at The Palace Hotel in Gstaad. Rose Productions invited some friendly faces to enjoy the spoiling weekend hosted by ASW's Sabine Heller & Patrick Liotard Vogt. Cashmere blankets were on tap to wrap up on the chair lifts that took us up zee mountains for a cosy lunch, complete with gingham table cloths and plenty of Glühwein. We danced the night away in the GreenGo Nightclub, ate fondue until bursting and dressed up to the nines at the beautiful charity auction and gala, which raised £60,000 for Carey Mulligan's preferred Alzheimer's charity.
