SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS commissioned 22 of fashion’s most notable known names and talented newcomers to design one-of-a-kind little black dresses for the initiative 22 Ways To Say Black. On September 20, 2010 at the acclaimed gallery, Phillips de Pury & Company in New York City, under the high-patronage of Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, the one-of-a-kind dresses were auctioned off with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the American Cancer Society and La ligue nationale contre le cancer in France.

Attendees included Academy Award® winning actress Halle Berry, Golden Globe® and Emmy® winning actress Julianna Margulies,  “Modern Family” star Sofia Vergara and “House” star Lisa Edelstein.

The twenty-two participating designers included Alberta Ferretti, Alexis Mabille, Azaaro, Boudicca, Catherine Malandrino, Diane Von Furstenberg, Donna Karan, Fendi, Gaspard Yurkievich, Gianfranco Ferre, Giorgio Armani Prive, Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci, Jean Paul Gaultier, Lanvin by Alber Elbaz, Mario Schwab, Martin Grant, Missoni, Phillip Lim, Sonia Rykiel, Thakoon, Valentino and Vivienne Westwood.

Merchants Overseas was also in attendance!!

Here’s some actual photos from the event:

Some of the fashion world’s rising stars got a boost this week in the form of glittering Swarovski crystals.  During Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, the crystal maker chose to support designers Prabal Gurung and Juan Carlos Obando in building their new collections for spring/summer 2011.

As a result, both designers incorporated Swarovski crystals into their collections, demonstrating the vast possibilities in designs of all kinds.  Coverage of the shows and exclusive content is now available to view at

For more than 10 years, Swarovski has worked with international talent like Erdem, Marios Schwab, Holly Fulton, Mark Fast, Michael Van der Ham, Richard Nicoll, and others to produce inspiring runway visions. Collaborating with Gurung and Obando was the next step.
