Louis Vuitton's Diwali

Am loving this! Louis Vuitton will be incorporating the Indian holiday of Diwali into their store's holiday windows worldwide starting November 5.

Diwali (also known as the Festival of Lights) is celebrated in Hinduism, Sikhism, and Jainism and signifies the victory of good over evil. Some Indian businesses begin the financial year on the first day of Diwali wishing for goodluck the following year.

In order to create beautiful window displays, Vuitton is working with Indian designer Rajeev Sethi. These windows will showcase hand-painted paper trunks glowing from within. Special items will include limited edition dresses made of vintage sari fabrics. Oooohh I want one!
