Swarovski just released the list of shows it’ll be sponsoring for Spring 2011. The roster is long, but distinguished:
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!
