By Luke Barras-hill |

As expected, DFS Group has unveiled its latest T Galleria by DFS store in Macau at The Londoner Macao.

The Londoner Macao, a British-inspired integrated resort on the Cotai Strip, hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony and celebration on 25 November attended by brand and media partners, social media influencers, VIP guests and officials from DFS Group and Shoppes at Londoner.

This included a special opening performance and store tours to present the new shopping universe.

Guests received a whirlwind virtual trip to London, enjoying British-themed elements within the store supported by a lineup of highly desirable beauty products.

British military-inspired drum and flag performers animated the store, giving lucky customers the impression they were watching a live ‘Changing of the Guard’ ceremony at Buckingham Palace in London.

First for Penhaligon’s

The Londoner Macao represents DFS’ eighth unit in the special administrative region and brings together more than 120 global and emerging brands over more than 22,000sq ft.

On show are more than 50 beauty brands, 36 watches and sunglasses labels and in excess of 40 fashion and children’s items.

Beauty lovers can encounter a new concept called ‘The Beauty Collective’, showcasing today’s trendy and emerging brands such as Malin+Goetz, Dr. Barbara Sturm and Tata Harper – all of which are exclusively available at DFS within Macau travel retail.

From now through the end of the year, guests who visit and shop at T Galleria by DFS, Macau, The Londoner can participate in the exclusive digital lucky draw for a chance to win exciting prizes.* A fun-filled calendar of kids workshops and activations taking place throughout the store will also be available all through November and December.

These sit alongside British beauty favourites such as Burberry, Creed, Jo Malone London and Miller Harris, plus DFS’ first-ever Penhaligon’s counter.

An exclusive Burberry Odyssey pop-up is available for customers to try on the latest Burberry beauty products using AR technology at the virtual beauty studio and via live makeup demonstrations.

Dependent on spending, guests can receive an exclusive DFS holiday set or personalised Burberry charm and try their luck at interactive games for a chance to win additional gifts.
