London-based designer Christopher Kane was selected for the Swarovski Collective in Autumn/Winter 2006 and created a cutting-edge collection using crystal mesh. The designer’s appreciation for this innovative crystal fabric led to several high profile collaborations with Swarovski, including Swarovski Fashion Rocks in 2007 and the iconic Bolster Collection with Atelier Swarovski. In 2012, Swarovski reignited its partnership with Kane when the designer created a gold, crystal mesh trouser suit worn by Stella Tennant for the London Olympics’ Closing Ceremony, which was also shot by Nick Knight for British Vogue
