“With over twenty years of progress in growing and advocating for an important sector of the fashion industry, we have a lot to celebrate,” commented Karen Giberson, Accessories Council president.
The Accessories Council of Excellence awards (ACE) pay homage to those individuals and groups who exhibit excellence in accessories and whose contributions further innovation in the industry. Honorees are nominated and selected by peers, including top retailers, the Accessories Council Board of Directors and members of the fashion press.
Swarovski creates a range of accessories – from the collections of crystal jewelry that embody everyday glamour to high-fashion creations from leading designers in partnership with Atelier Swarovski. Swarovski’s commitment to responsible business practices and ongoing industry support continues to push the boundaries of innovation and accountability in the accessories sector.
“I think a lot of people are surprised that Swarovski is 120 years old,” noted Nadja Swarovski. “When people visit us in Austria they are absolutely amazed to understand where we (Swarovski) come from. Visitors expect an industrial plant and are overwhelmed by the incredibly beautiful and natural environment. This reflects our care and consideration of not only the environment, but also the dignity and care the family business has for its manufacturing and employees. Our heritage contributes to the association of quality with the Swarovski product.”
