New York Fashion Week Recap: Crystal, Glamour and Glitz

Posted on: February 22, 2010

Being the # 1 US Distributor and Recommended 5 Star Dealer of Crystallized(TM) – Swarovski Elements, it is amazing for us at Merchants Overseas to see how timeless Swarovski Elements have become. Almost 60 years after our beginning, Crystallizing garments in Swarovski is more popular than ever before!

Yigal Azrouel Fall 2010 Collection

Even more so in a down economy, it has become super popular for designers to use Swarovski Crystals to add glitz and glamour to their work without having it cost an outrageous amount to produce or purchase.

Badgley Mischka Fall 2010 Collection

Just like how Victoria’s Secret comes out with their million dollar diamond bra to dazzle the minds of people everywhere, other designers are using Swarovski Crystal rather than diamonds, for this same effect.  In turn,  this more affordable luxury look is actually making runway garments a lot less “runway or red carpet only” and more appealing and attainable for “everyday.”

Michael Kors Fall 2010 Collection

Also, a great and innovative way designers are using crystals in 2010,  includes designing these sparkly slip-on shoe covers/leg warmers (a Lady Gaga favorite):

Did You Know? That this is the last year that New York Fashion Week will take place in Bryant Park?  In 2011 the shows will be held at the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, at Columbus Avenue between 62nd and 66th Streets in Manhattan. The Lincoln Center is the country’s largest performing arts center and is home to some of New York’s premier arts institutions, including the Metropolitan Opera, the New York City Ballet, the New York Philharmonic and Lincoln Center Theater.
