On 18th October 2017, Singapore celebrates Diwali or the Festival of Lights together with our fellow citizens of the Hindu faith. Diwali, aka Deepavali, marks the triumph of good over evil. Light symbolises peace and knowledge. So one can imagine the bright vibrance of Diwali, especially in Little India.
The streets will be lined with bazaars selling wares in a riot of colours. And you will be struck by the sweet fragrance of jasmine and an assortment of other flowers hung in thick garlands. We are inspired by the colours of mandalas, jewellery and sequinned dresses to create a gift wrapping style for Diwali.

We combined a green non-woven wrapping sheet with a slight shine and a floral flourish made from hot pink tissue paper. The translucence of the non-woven sheet allowed some of the hot pink to peek through, which provided some harmony to these complementary colours.
The gift wrapping style was finished off with a 4-winged bow made from an electric blue organza-satin mix ribbon with gold borders.
We are ready to sparkle for Diwali. Are you?
