The guests enjoyed an evening of fashion and style while discovering the new Swarovski Secret Treasures Fall/Winter collection 2013.
Not only the guests were invited to discover the new Swarovski Secret Treasures Fall/Winter collection 2013 but they were also invited to participate in a competition where the contestants had to dress a mannequin with Swarovski jewelry and create the best Glamorous look, Casual look, Office look or Abaya look. After that, judges chose the best look option and the winner had the chance to win this look as a prize. The whole event set-up and atmosphere reflected the glamour of Swarovski and helped the contemporary women to bring out the best in them.
Swarovski’s creative director Nathalie Colin’s book ‘Multiface(t) s of Fashion’ was also presented to provide tips to women on how to incorporate Swarovski jewelry in different looks such as Office look, Casual look etc.
For Fall/Winter 2013/14, Nathalie Colin has designed a collection named “Secret Treasures,” reminiscent of a journey. Inspired by the Silk Road, this collection is built around four legendary locations, each of which holds treasures of tradition and beauty. From China to the Himalayas and from India to Venice, “Secret Treasures” revisits emblematic elements with a skillful blend of modernity and sophistication. “As I was strongly influenced by my travels to Asia, China, the Himalayas, and India, I have a special connection with the inspiration of this collection. True admirer of the orientalist, explorer, writer, and adventurer, Alexandra David Neel, I imagined such a journey across continents and mountains transposed in today’s times,” explained Creative Director Nathalie Colin.
Overall, the opening was a sparkling success!
