Shoppers will be able to find an assortment of merchandise from dresses to shoes carrying the Chinese New Year theme to elevate their look.

Sunway Carnival Mall general manager Chai Wen Yew said the auspicious ‘Bank of Luck’ theme was chosen to usher in the Spring Festival with abundance of good luck and fortune.

“This unique theme features the calabash or bottle gourd as its main decor to bring auspicious and positive vibes.

“During Raya, there is a Raya decor, during Deepavali, they will have a Deepavali decor as well, and even during Christmas, the mood is brought on without fail.

“So, I believe with this theme, Sunway Carnival Mall can usher in a prosperous mood and become a place everyone wants to be, ” he said in his speech.
