Pavilion KL, Malaysia’s premier shopping destination, today launched ‘Flavours of Diwali’ – a joyous Deepavali event to celebrate this year’s Festival of Lights. Inspired by the symbols which reflect the true essence of Deepavali, Flavours of Diwali will showcase the most creative and largest kolam design in collaboration with Limkokwing University of Creative Technology, which will be featured in the Centre Court of the mall from now until 23rd October 2017.
Flavours of Diwali invites Malaysians to come together for a feast of the senses in the heart of Bukit Bintang, with colourful, vivid decorations, stunning performances, fabulous shopping deals and mouth-watering dishes, some created exclusively for the festive period.
To celebrate the launch, media and guests were treated to a spectacular performance and speeches by Ms Kung Suan Ai, Director of Marketing, Pavilion KL and Dato’ Gail Phung, Senior Vice President of Corporate Development, Limkokwing University of Creative Technology Worldwide before seeing the beautiful ‘Unity Kolam’ be brought to life in a magnificent lighting ceremony.
Designed by Limkokwing University of Creative Technology’s students from 18 different countries, the ‘Unity Kolam’ features 3 huge ‘kolam’ which comes together to create one massive, vivid art piece. The colourful kolam is infused with robust coloured rice grains to boast intricate patterns of the different symbols of Deepavali, such as the Elephant which represents strength, power, stability and wisdom; the Lotus which encompasses creativity, wealth, health and prosperity; and the Peacock which captures beauty and elegance. Like the myriad colours on the kolam, Flavours of Diwali captures the true essence of Deepavali that we are the most beautiful when we embody these symbols and are united as one.
To add to the vibrant ambience of the Centre Court, media, guests and patrons of the mall were treated to a joyous modern Bollywood dance performance before being led to Royal India to enjoy a grand feast fit for a king to end the festivities of the day.
