There are also tributes from some of the industry’s most celebrated editors including former British Vogue Editor-in-Chief Alexandra Shulman, Vogue International Editor Suzy Menkes, and Imran Amed, the founder and Editor-in-Chief of Business of Fashion, among others.
The book includes photographs by Carl Kleiner showing the Swarovski archive, captured at the company’s crystal factory near Innsbruck in Austria.
In addition to film projections and light effects, the book launch party included an exhibition curated by Simon Costin of unique pieces from the Swarovski archive, including crystallised dresses, jewellery and home décor collaborations.
The book launch party was attended by A-list celebrities and fashion designers such as Bianca Jagger, Jourdan Dunn, Christopher Kane, Alice Temperley, Golly Fulton, Peter Pilotto, Christoper de Vos and Nadja Swarovski.
