In celebration of the Year of the Dragon, The Exchange TRX’s Lunar New Year campaign brings to life ‘The Silk Story’ – a prized material that was once a catalyst for the trading of commodities, culture, and knowledge between the East and West.

‘The Silk Story’ will see The Exchange TRX transformed into a living canvas, inviting guests to explore the significance of silk and its role in binding different communities together from now to 18 February 2024.

“As the social heart of KL’s newest international financial district, The Exchange TRX hopes to bring local and international communities together, replaying the role silk had in cementing the prominence of Chinese culture internationally. Just as how TRX City Park showcases the biodiversity of Malaysia, The Exchange TRX will highlight the culture, heritage, and core ideas of what make this country so unique,” says Mitch Wilson, Project Director of The Exchange TRX and Head of Retail at Lendlease Malaysia.

“As a beacon of cultural diversity, The Exchange TRX honours the traditions of multi-cultural Malaysia by creating campaigns that forge a unified community experience and celebrates our collective heritage,” he continues.

The Exchange TRX will be transformed into a spectacle of festive delights, featuring captivating decorations from an intricately-crafted giant revolving silk lantern with a mythical dragon flying through, to ornately decorated pop-ups and a magnificent animated dragon intertwined with silk that will run the length of the three-storey flat iron screen.

Interactive experiences such as Lunar New Year craft workshops will also allow guests to engage with the rich and tactile nature of silk in a hands-on way, fostering the sharing of skills and knowledge to strengthen community bonds and preserve cultural traditions.

There will also be performances held on weekends: from an Oriental music ensemble, traditional dragon and acrobatic lion dances, silk dances as well as a Lunar New Year performance by Taylor’s International School.

The Exchange TRX will also collaborate with upscale supermarket, Mercato, to provide Lunar New Year goodies for 100 families with the Suriana Welfare Society Malaysia.
