Ikon’s Kate Dennis was creative director on the high profile coffee table book Butterflies and All Things Sweet: The Story of Ms B’s Cakes by Bonnae Gokson. Hong Kong-based Gokson is a world-renowned lifestyle guru, entrepreneur and restaurateur and the ‘Ms B’ in the book’s title.
Butterflies and All Things Sweet isn’t a cookbook, rather a fabulous visual feast portraying the ingredients and inspiration behind Ms B Cakery’s edible works of art through exquisite art direction and lush photography by Petrina Tinslay and A. Chester Ong plus select contributing photographers. The deluxe edition is a lavish production packaged in a custom perspex box. This was launched on September 9, 2013 at JOYCE Hong Kong, Shanghai and Beijing, followed by Manila and the Philippines on 9 October and the New York launch on 22 October hosted by Ralph Lauren at his 888 Madison store.
