Vivienne Tam’s “A Lunar Love Story”-
Soho Boutique; 40 Mercer St
“Chinese folklore turns to a beautiful story of longing between an immortal lady, Chang’e, who is banished to live on the moon forever, and her mortal husband, Houyi, far below on earth. This September on the day when the moon is the brightest and fullest, Chang’e and Houyi can find each other and are reunited. For centuries on this night, Chinese people have lit up the earth with candles and lanterns to help light the way for the lovers’ reunion. This tradition has evolved to an appreciation of the moon and its symbolic meaning. While looking up at the full moon, people think of their loved ones, wherever they are in the world, and this brings them a little closer”.
On FNO Vivienne Tam invites customers to experience an evening of tasty treats by Nobu Restaurant, five new dessert truffles being premeired by Godiva, and vino. DJ Peter High will be on the turntables, while you play and win prizes with Julia Chang from Fox in the traditional “Lantern Riddle” game.
