The last day of autumn’s snowfall at the Arma factory glared with a peculiar shine. The arriving guests knew without a doubt that the Swarovski show was going to be spectacular. It seemed that one had entered the truly glossy world of glitter, glamour and glory. The contrasts of the black fl oor, covered with crystals and the snow-white podium created the blinding light of the crystals even more strongly. The refreshments were caviare, foie-gras, fruit and Moët champagne, which contributed to the presentiment of something grandiose. The young designer Nadezhda had created brilliant clothing and accessories from crystals by Swarovski, with which Jean-Paul Gaultier’s, Valentin Yudashkin’s, Denis Simachev’s, Christopher Kane’s, Chapurin’s and more than 20 other designers’ models had been dressed. The culmination of the show, which had been styled by Damian Foxe, was a catwalk stalked by models in designs by Swarovski and the enchanting designer Alexander Mc-Queen, which caused a storm of applause by the guests at the party. It was an extravagant show of elegance, style and great fashion.
