Il Gufo presents the perfect summer wardrobe for the city’s most sophisticated little movers and shakers thanks to their SS18 collection. Showcasing this collection in style, Il Gufo hosted an unrivalled of fun-filled family activities where guests saw the Il Gufo Boutique at the Dubai Mall transformed into a stunning desert landscape.
Dubai’s little ones were invited to an afternoon of arts & crafts and activities where the children embarked on a treasure hunt, scouring the store for the brightest and boldest butterflies they could find to add to their adventurer scrolls resulting in a fantastic display of fluttering wings. The pitter-patter of little feet sounded throughout the store as excitement filled the air each time a new species was discovered. Others focused intently on their fantastic colouring skills, with colouring books or t-shirts to choose from, showcasing the little artists within. Taking the activities a tattoo station was set up for little critters to adorn their arms and faces with beautiful gold and black temporary tattoos. Cactus inspired macaroons and muffins were offered to all, with homemade juices for the little ones and delicious Arabic coffee and dates for the parents. As the afternoon wore on children and parents alike were presented with cinema-style favourite bites such as salted caramel popcorn and chocolate covered peanuts whilst they nuzzled into the pop up cinema corner, where they were transported on an expedition through the desert with an animation featuring lizards, snakes, scorpions and more!
After the activities, parents and their little fashionistas were treated to a photo-shoot with a pop up cactus inspired photo booth. The children beamed at the camera showing off their goodies in true model style. After an afternoon filled with fashion, fantasy and fabulous frivolities the #ilgufodesertdream journey has just begun!
