The Painted Phantom by Quinn for £888,000 奎恩的彩绘幻影售88万英镑

It will never be modest or even an affordable affair when one puts Rolls Royce and Marq Quinn together for a charity cause.  Rolls-Royce’s ‘Evelin Art for Allergy x Dine on the Line’ helped raised £1.7 million in support of allergy research at the Evelina London Children’s Hospital. The star of the show is undoubtedly the art piece that was bid for £888,000 where world-renowned artist Marc Quinn created a magnificent artwork on a Rolls-Royce Phantom. The artwork takes inspiration from Quinn’s on-going series of iris paintings, named ‘We Share Our Chemistry with the Stars’. 

The evening included an exquisite and immersive dining experience, where guests enjoyed a menu carefully curated by world-renowned chef, Giorgio Locatelli. Following the auction, singer-songwriter John Newman entertained guests, before DJ Fat Tony closed out an extraordinary evening of philanthropy. 

当劳斯莱斯(Rolls Royce)和马克奎恩(Marq Quinn)为了慈善事业而走在一起时,绝对是既价值不菲又高端的话题。而Rolls-Royce的 “Evelin Art for Allergy x Dine on the Line” 为伦敦埃维莉娜儿童医院筹集了170万英镑,用于支持过敏研究项目。其中又以一辆劳斯莱斯幻影标轴版车型艺术品创出88万英镑的竞标价,这是著名视觉系画家马克奎恩在劳斯莱斯幻影基础上再创作的杰出作品。灵感来自他正在进行的虹膜绘画系列,名为“We Share Our Chemistry with the Stars”。

当晚盛会除了精致且典雅的用餐体验,宾客享用由世界级大厨 Giorgio Locatelli 精心策划的菜单。拍卖会后,歌手兼音乐人John Newman呈献表演,然后由DJ Fat Tony结束了非凡的慈善之夜。

Cut & Class 品味重塑

Dr Nicole Yap
Breast and Skin Oncoplastic Surgeon
乳腺肿瘤整形及内分泌外科医生

Delightfully Australian with a dash of Hakka, and plenty of smarts, Dr Nicole Yap is the director of Breast Institute Australia, and is the leading expert in breast and skin oncoplastic surgery in Australia. Her other interests include endocrine surgery and the treatment of varicose veins. Dr Yap has practices at St Vincent’s, Epworth, Mulgrave and Holmesglen Private.

One of the few Melbourne practitioners who specialises in the dual practice of tumour removal, by mastectomy with breast reconstruction, Dr Yap will be opening a new fully integrated clinic under Breast Institute Australia in Prahran, early 2020. Aiming to provide a service for breast and skin issues, both pathological and aesthetic, the clinic will house a general practitioner, breast and skin oncoplastic surgeon, oncologist, radiology, dietitian, physiotherapist, breast care nurse and a beautician specialising in counteracting hormonal changes associated with menopause and breast cancer treatment, and eyelash and eyebrow feathering to counteract the effects of chemotherapy.

Believe in yourself, trust your instincts and never let anyone put you down.

“Currently breast cancer affects one in seven women and is the leading cause of cancer death in females. Breast cancer need not be a death sentence if women are in tune with their bodies. Early diagnosis is key to survival and women should seek advice if concerned about any signs of a breast lump, nipple discharge, nipple inversion, or breast skin tethering or dimpling.”

After training in plastic surgery, Dr Yap completed her fellowship in general surgery. Her speciality is in combining surgical cancer treatment of the breast with plastic surgical techniques to achieve an aesthetically pleasing result.

“The techniques of breast oncoplastic surgery allows removal of the cancer, as a lump or mastectomy, whilst maintaining a good shape. This allows better psychological response to further treatment such as chemotherapy, as well as counteracting the potential distortion of the breast from radiotherapy”. This has led to her being voted as finalist in MyFaceMyBody Awards in the Best Practice, Best Patient Experience and Best Aesthetic Practice categories. Dubbed the ‘Oscars’ of the cosmetic beauty industry, MyFaceMyBody Awards celebrates the best in the aesthetics business.

Dr Yap’s breast oncoplastic work was augmented by training at the European Institute of Oncology, Milan, and participating at the Breast Oncoplastic Workshop Royal College of Surgeons, London. She further honed her skills by working with leading breast oncoplastic surgeon, Dr Krishna Clough at the Clinique Bizet in Paris, and more recently with Dr Emmanual Delay at Leon Berard cancer centre and Clinique Charcot.

Breast cancer need not be a death sentence if women are in tune with their bodies. Early diagnosis is key to survival.

An authority on breast reconstruction and augmentation using both implants and autologous fat grafting, she has presented at the International Society of Plastic Regenerative Surgery Congress, Rome and World Congress of Regenerative Medicine & Stem Cell, Guangzhou, China. She has also presented at IPRAS Sydney, and EPRAS, Vienna.

A prolific surgical and community awareness educator with previous experience as examiner of medical students at Monash University, she has represented The Royal Australasian College of Surgeons in a presentation regarding ‘Changing trends in breast cancer and the implications to the management of this disease’ to the Minister of Health.

Within the last year, she was invited to be judge and presenter of the USA MyFaceMyBody Awards at the Beverley Wilshire Hotel; featured in The Ultimate 100 Global Aesthetic Leaders publication; invited as faculty member of first Global Virtual Aesthetic Symposium, and was awarded a Certificate of Outstanding Service by the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons.

Among numerous appointments, Dr Yap is deputy chair of the VRC of The Royal Australasian College of Surgeons, a RACS representative of the Cancer Council of Victoria Medical and Scientific Committee, AMA Councillor, past president of the Australian Chinese Medical Association of Victoria, a board member of Pink Hope, vice president of the Medico-Legal Society of Victoria, a member of Breast Surgeons ANZ Society, Australian Society of Breast Disease, COSA (Clinical Oncological Society of Australia), Australian & New Zealand Endocrine Surgeons, and Australian & New Zealand Society of Phlebologist. 

An upbeat and witty personality, even in the face of grave issues like cancer and mortality, she imparts soulful words, “Believe in yourself, trust your instincts and never let anyone put you down.” 

Nicole Yap 医生除了是拥有客家特质的爽直澳大利亚人,同时也是澳大利亚最好的乳腺肿瘤整形和内分泌外科医生之一。她是澳大利亚乳腺癌研究所的总监,也曾在圣文森特 (St Vincent’s)、爱普沃斯(Epworth)和马尔格雷夫 (Mulgrave)私立医院实践服务。

相信你自己,信任你的直觉,永远不要让任何人打击你。

“目前,每7名女性中就有1人患乳腺癌,也是女性癌症病患死亡的主要原因。如果女性与她们的身体状况保持步调一致,那么乳腺癌并非被判死刑。早期诊断是生存的关键,一旦有任何乳房肿块、乳头溢液、乳头内翻、乳房皮肤栓紧或凹陷的迹象,妇女应该寻求治疗建议。”在接受整形外科训练后,Nicole完成了她的普通外科学术资格。她的专长是将乳腺癌手术治疗与整形技术相结合,以达到美观的效果。

“乳腺肿瘤整形手术的技术可以使患者对化疗和放疗等进一步治疗产生更好的反应,同时保持优美的体型。”这让她获得了MyFaceMyBody最佳实践奖、最佳患者体验奖和最佳美学实践奖的最终入围。“MyFaceMyBody”大奖被称为“医美界奥斯卡”,是为了表彰美容行业的佼佼者而设。

Nicole医生的乳腺癌整形技术通过在米兰欧洲肿瘤研究所的培训和参与伦敦皇家外科医师学院乳腺癌整形讲习班取得充分实践。她进一步磨练技能,与领先的乳腺肿瘤整形外科医生Dr Krishna Clough在Clinique Bizet工作,近期则与医生专家Dr Emmanual Delay在里昂贝拉尔癌症中心和Clinique Charcot工作。
