INSPIRED BY SPRING FASHION, ENJOY THE ION ORCHARD FASHION GARDEN COMPLETE WITH BUTTERFLIES
More than fifteen species of butterflies from different countries symbolise the beginning of the colorful line-up of the Spring/Summer’15 fashion collection at ION Orchard.
From 10 April to 3 May 2015, ION will be transformed into a Spring oasis with the ION Orchard Fashion Garden. Its piece de resistance will be its first-ever butterfly house, a captivating enclosed domed installation. It will be an enchanting experience for all who enter the magical winged world of live butterflies in vibrant colours and patterns. The species of butterflies coming from India, New Zealand, Sub-Saharan Africa, Indonesia, Asia and Singapore can be admired in a self-contained habitat that will include over 30 flower and plant species. Visitors can catch the butterflies feeding in flight, or at rest amidst the plants and animal topriaries in the dome daily between 11.00am-9.00pm* (*a pair of admission passes with every $80 spent in a single-day at ION Orchard).
Butterflies will not be the only ones soaking in the vitality and vigor of Spring. There will also be Salsa and Yoga sessions held at the ION Orchard Fashion Garden led by JJSalsaRengue on 24 April; and 25 April by lululemon athletica respectively.
Luxury takes on a new shine as Japan’s premier pearl specialty boutique Mikimoto moves into the mix with a new store on L2, and a pop-up exhibition of the Pearl Necklace Story Exhibition at the L1 Atrium on 29 and 30 April.
Fans of the iconic wrap dress from DVF are in for a new treat as its existing boutique at L1 will move to a larger, swankier new home at L3. The new store will be unveiled by Ms. Diane Von Furstenberg herself and will feature a distinctive Wrap Dress lounge and a full collection of wrap styles including dresses, gowns, jumpsuits, rompers and more. The brand’s iconic Journey of a Dress Exhibition will also make an exclusive showcase on L1 from 1 to 14 May, after touring cities such as Shanghai, Los Angeles, Paris and New York.
