This year’s inspiration draws on the idea of the infinite possibilities for creativity and innovation afforded by crystals from Swarovski. More than 40 haute couturiers and 56 designers from 17 countries have so far been invited to participate, each chosen for their design excellence in segments such as jewelry, interiors, apparel (couture and modest wear), shoes and bags. Each designer will be presenting one piece created exclusively for the event, which highlights the outstanding innovative use of Swarovski crystals. The event will be held at the Dubai Madinat Arena on October 25, 2017.
Commenting on the exhibition, Andrew Mojica, Managing Director, Swarovski Middle East, said: “This year’s Sparkling Couture Infinity exhibition in Dubai will bring together Swarovski’s most exciting designer partners in a celebration of extraordinary creativity. Having seen the designs that will be unveiled, I’m sure that it will be an event to remember.”
