First aquatic garden and mermaid installation along Orchard Road to kick start ION Orchard’s 10th anniversary celebrations


ION Orchard kicks off its 10th anniversary celebrations with a splash this Spring/Summer fashion season with the first mermaid tank installation along Orchard Road! From 1 to 28 April, visitors and shoppers will be treated to enchanting mermaid appearances, complete with Insta-worthy backdrops of vibrant vertical green walls, and water features. Over the next 10 months, shoppers can partake in a slew of fun and engaging activities and events, and exclusive deals and surprises in conjunction with the mall’s special milestone.


Fashion Makes a Splash at ION Orchard
Nature and undersea fantasy take center stage at ION Orchard’s Spring/Summer fashion season, where the mall’s outdoor space ION2 transforms into a dreamlike fashion garden, complete with an aquarium that will feature meet-and-greet sessions with an underwater mermaid dressed in a glittery sequined mermaid tail. The beautiful mermaid will pose and greet shoppers in Orchard Road’s first purpose-built mermaid aquarium tank measuring 2.4 square meters and 1.8 meters in height and containing some 8,000 liters of seawater. Together with sounds of marine life and decorative lighting, shoppers will be transported to a magical undersea realm.

Visitors can catch the mermaid over four weekends from 1 to 28 April, every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at 5pm, 6pm, and 7pm.

Visitors can further join in the aquatic fun at an optical illusion see-through water ceiling installation, flanked by picturesque walls of lush greenery hanging overhead. Taking inspiration from springtime blossoms, visitors will experience nature, accompanied by the therapeutic and calming sounds of the ocean. The aquatic garden, with its array of floral backdrops and see-through ceiling-reflective pool, will be the perfect spot to snap OOTD photos and selfies with family and friends!
