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.

Fashion is constantly changing but one thing that remains in style is the simple black dress.  Both slimming and flattering, a simple black dress will always be the Go To article of clothing in every woman’s closet.

A catalog presented by SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS along with Phillips de Pury & Company, decided to take The Little Black Dress to another level.  Just doing what they do best!

The catalog features 22 “Ways to Say Black.”  The catalog features wonderful creations from 22 leading fashion designers showcasing their take on The Little Black Dress.  Crystallized dresses by Jean Paul Gaultier, Vivienne Westwood and Martin Grant are some of the special designs featured in this collection.

On September 20th all 22 dresses will be auctioned at Phillips’ New York gallery on 450 West 15th Street. The funds raised from the auction will be used to help the American Cancer Society and la Ligue Nationale Contre le Cancer in France.
