Giant Illuminated Dragon and More Welcomes Lunar New Year
A legendary creature in Chinese mythology and folklore, the dragon is a traditional symbol of power, strength, and good luck. The Forum Shops at Caesars is sharing this fabled creature in a big way by welcoming a 22-ft. long, 6-ft. wide and 12-ft. high dragon to the world-renowned retail destination. Displayed on the Fortuna Terrace near the entrance to The Forum Shops from Caesars Palace casino for the public to enjoy, the massive 950-lb steel-framed dragon is covered in 30,000 red and amber LED lights, many of which flicker, giving the mythical beast a vibrant look and dynamic feel. While the Chinese New Year begins on February 19, 2015 and it is the Year of the Sheep, the traditional Chinese dragon will be on display throughout the Lunar New Year celebratory season. To further mark Chinese New Year, The Forum Shops at Caesars will again welcome students from the Meadows School, who will perform the traditional dragon parade throughout The Forum Shops at Caesars on Thursday, Feb. 19 beginning at 10 a.m. The cast of singers and dancers includes 120 Meadows students – 60 from kindergarten and 60 from fifth grade plus the school’s very special guest, founder and Mayor of Las Vegas Carolyn Goodman.
A number of Forum Shops retailers are also marking the Lunar New Year season with special events and limited-edition products. To celebrate Chinese New Year, British luxury brand Mulberry has created a limited edition version of its best-selling Cara Delevingne Bag. The Mini Cara Delevingne Bag in Poppy Red Quilted Nappa Leather has an exclusive finishing touch: a stamped ram on the leather keeper symbolizing 2015’s Chinese zodiac sign. There are only eighty-eight Chinese New Year Mini Cara Delevingne Bags, available in selected locations around the world – including The Forum Shops at Caesars. Collectors and guests of Rotella Gallery will not only be engaged with festive decor but the gallery is also highlighting photographs that coincide with the special occasion. In conjunction with the Year of the Goat, Sheep and Ram, Rotella Gallery is highlighting two of photographer Art Wolfe’s brilliantly captured images “Mountain Goat & Kid” and “Huang Shan.” Burberry has a Lunar New Year inspired collection for 2015 including a limited edition Scottish-woven Heritage Cashmere Scarf in camel, stone and charcoal. The scarf is embroidered with the Chinese symbol for good fortune. Burberry monogramming is also available for Lunar New Year gifts. The iconic Heritage cashmere scarves, color block ponchos, and the new My Burberry fragrance for women can be personalized with up to three initials to create bespoke gifts for loved ones. Van Cleef and Arpels spotlight the Midnight Red Dragon timepiece. Set in white gold with the dial crafted of miniature painting in enamel. Swatch is proud to present The Goat’s Keeper, a special watch created in celebration of the 2015 Chinese New Year.
