Fu­sion of scenic flora and fash­ion

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Salam Aidilfitri - Pic­ture-wor­thy mo­ments abound amid the mall’s pic­turesque decor.

IN ush­er­ing in the month of Ra­madan and sub­se­quently Hari Raya Aidil­fitri, Sun­way Pu­tra Mall Kuala Lumpur is wel­com­ing shop­pers with a stun­ning flo­ralin­spired cam­paign called “Pes­ona Raya”.

From now un­til July 2, the cam­paign will high­light the vi­brant and di­verse fash­ion dis­played dur­ing the fes­tive sea­son.

Ac­cord­ingly, the mall has col­lab­o­rated with singer and ac­tress Mar­sha Mi­lan Lon­doh to be the am­bas­sador of Pes­ona Raya.

Mar­sha is known for her lov­able, ju­bi­lant per­son­al­ity and so­phis­ti­cated sense of style, which matches this year’s theme.

The mall’s Raya decor fea­tures a lux­u­ri­ous gar­den sur­rounded by green­ery, repli­cat­ing a kam­pung set within the rain­for­est.

A scenic water­fall adds to the beauty of this lush gar­den decked out at the main con­course, com­ple­mented with a wooden walk­way along the pond that wel­comes vis­i­tors with a feel­ing of tran­quil­lity as they shop.

“The idea be­hind this con­cept was to bring back nos­tal­gic mem­o­ries of be­ing in a kam­pung sur­rounded by green­ery and play­ing by the river dur­ing our free time.

“Through this ef­fort, we hope to share some of that mer­ri­ment with our pa­trons dur­ing the fes­tive month,” said Sun­way Pu­tra Mall gen­eral man­ager Phang Sau Lian.

To add to the fes­tive at­mos­phere, the mall presents of­fer­ings and pro­mo­tions that high­light Malaysian tra­di­tions.

It also prom­ises a lav­ish shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ence by high­light­ing mod­ern-cen­tric fash­ion, bring­ing in renowned de­signer col­lec­tions such as Tom Abang Saufi, Sa­likin Sidek, Bo­hari KL, Pe­tra and Kraftan­gan Malaysia.

These col­lec­tions are unique and authen­tic to her­itage staples such as batik and songket tenun.

Prepa­ra­tions for Raya will be a breeze as vis­i­tors will be spoilt for choice with of­fer­ings rang­ing from the ex­trav­a­gant Flower Mar­ket, ham­pers and gifts from Marks and Spencer and home dec­o­ra­tions by Home and Liv­ing to a Raya Bazaar at Level 5 that of­fers tra­di­tional sou­venirs, as­sorted de­lights and el­e­gant Raya fash­ion de­signed by lo­cal celebri­ties.

Vis­i­tors will be en­ter­tained with an ar­ray of per­for­mances rang­ing from fash­ion shows and tra­di­tional dance per­for­mances to tra­di­tional arts and crafts work­shops by Kraftan­gan Malaysia, where par­tic­i­pants can learn the art of ke­tu­pat weav­ing, jew­ellery mak­ing, batik art and even rat­tan crafts.

It also presents an ideal op­por­tu­nity to in­tro­duce these cul­tur­ally rich tra­di­tions and crafts.

“Fes­tive sea­sons such as Hari Raya Aidil­fitri serve as a re­minder for us to take the time to em­brace our cul­ture and at the same time, keep the tra­di­tional crafts alive while shop­pers pre­pare to usher in the month of Syawal,” said Phang.

Sun­way Pu­tra Mall’s main con­course fea­tures a lux­u­ri­ous gar­den sur­rounded by lush green­ery, repli­cat­ing a ‘kam­pung’ set within the rain­for­est.
