EXHIBITION CELEBRATES MIFFY
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of comic character Miffy, East Point City in Tseung Kwan O will present an array of activities from today until April 20.
Miffy was created by Dutch artist Dick Bruna in 1955. Since then the little rabbit has become a design and fashion icon. Miffy books are published in more than 40 languages and have sold nearly 85 million copies worldwide.
The exhibition venue will be decorated with vibrant colours, and several hundred Miffy products, including drawings and accessories created over the past decades, will be on display.
Canto-pop female duo 2R will officiate at the opening today at 3pm. For more information about the exhibition, visit www.eastpointcity.com.hk.
