Henna at Bothos – The legend of the White Elephant!

Last night Sara’s Henna provided henna services for an event at the new Italian concept store recently opened in Central, Hong Kong called Bothos. Stepping into this store is like a journey into a world of exotic leather and luxury items ranging from beautifully crafted unique bags to the vintage trunks, lamps and exotic jewelry pieces all sourced by the owner Luigino Bothos along his travels. I loved doing henna at this event just because the store itself was decked out in a very artsy style with beautiful displays and video installations all adding to the overall exotic experience and ambience of the evening.

The event was themed after The Legend of the White Elephant – inspired by the Silk Road, and in keeping with the theme of the event, we even had some elephant tattoos! Although there was a design sheet that clients could choose from, most of them let me flow with my imagination, all they had to do was tell me where to design it! The event was overwhelming from the minute I stepped in the store at quarter to 7 to be greeted by people already there eager to get their henna tattoos done! From then till 10:30 the night was a blur of hands, names, paisleys and flowers with a lot of chatter and laughter in between:) From a henna point of view I think the event was a great success, as people enjoyed getting their hands, ankles and shoulders painted with exotic henna designs, though for how long they stayed intricate is a different matter altogether! Check out some of the selected shots above as well as the design sheet below!

For a unique henna experience in Hong Kong, remember Sara’s Henna!
