A Diwali pop-up opens in Central this week

Channel your inner Diwali diva this week as local event specialist Mums@PLAY hosts a three-day Fashion & Fun Pop-Up to highlight the Indian festival of lights.

Diwali celebrates the glory of light over darkness and hope over despair; event organiser Mehroo Turel hopes to make this an accessible Diwali event for Hong Kong’s mums, as well as catering for the territory’s substantial Indian population.

“We hope visitors will enjoy  browsing out curated range of ethnic Indian and fusion products,” says Turel. Shop precious stones, ethnic ‘kundan’ jewellery, traditional ‘gota’ pouches and bags, cotton and linen saris and festive ‘diyas’ (lamps) and homewares. A Diwali-themed party is planned for October 25.

Free entry, 11am-8pm, Oct 25-27, Usagi, Wah Shin House, 6-10 Shin Hing Street, Central. mumsatplay.com

This year Diwali is celebrated on Nov 7.
