Drawing his inspiration from cluster formations of natural crystal, Newson has created 15 unique trophies for each of the Fashion Award category winners, which when placed together form one truly stunning crystal sculpture.
“I was delighted to be asked to design this trophy. Swarovski crystal is a fantastic material to work with, and the reflections of the individual trophies create such an interesting visual effect when they are placed together,” says Newson.
Celebrating the pure beauty of crystal, each trophy is a perfectly clear hexagonal column, with the name of the award winner engraved onto the base. Handcrafted by Swarovski’s master cutters in Austria, the trophies are a gleaming tribute to this evening’s winners.
Described as the most influential designer of his generation, Marc Newson has worked across a wide range of disciplines, creating everything from furniture and household objects to bicycles and cars, private and commercial aircraft, yachts, various architectural commissions, and signature sculptural pieces.
