What does a Swarovski sponsorship afford designers? Along with generous financial support, they're also required to use Swarovski crystals in their collections. For some, like the embellishment-happy Holly Fulton, that's easy. For others--say, Mark Fast--it's a bit more challenging. (However, we saw a sneak peek of Fast pulling it off when we met him earlier this year. He actually embedded the pyramid gems into the knit.)

Congrats to the recipients--we can't wait to see what they have in store for SS 2011!
