      Hi, thanks for your patience waiting for our reply.

      For your information, dress code is smart and casual that follows the ethics code.

      The definition of smart and causal is that:

      1. It is comfortable for you and others.
      2. Breathable in accordance to current weather.

      Unless you’re attending any events in the library that requires specific dress codes, example:

      1. Unity gala which requires you to wear ethnic clothing that you’re proud of yourself of.

      2. Thematic & Exploratory
      It is understandable that thematic gala are expensive, please let creativity to divulge.

      To define ethics is that:
      To respect everyone else albeit indifferences based in mutual agreement.

      I hope this answers you.
      Thank you.
