Swarovski truly gave me a huge pleasure by inviting me as VIP guest at the premiere of their Atelier Swarovski where they showcased several masters closely connected to the present fashion scene. There were some classic inspired designs such at the ones of Jason Wu which took me back to the nineties (for some reason) while Christoper Kane had packed out with his wide range of Bolster collection. Now it was really a difficult choice to make up a favourite as I adore Swarovski in general. Yet I did have a special preference for Mary Katrantzou’s Nostalgia collection.
The play of geometric shapes which she used cloth the crystals in was very peculiar. Yet is was like candy to my eye. Her designs quickly got the attention of many guest. Certain shapes reminded me to the mathematical scales I had studied at school. Others appeared like I had once seen in history books. I absolutely adored the double drop earrings and the fact that all her designs are so colourful, it can be matched with different colour of garments.
They always say that success leaves clues and when I study the works of a certain designer, I am stunned about how they gathered inspiration in order the create a certain collection. Finally, it all starts with a thought and the willpower to realize a dream. Something each one of us is capable to do. So why not give it a try!
