The Swarovski Collective program offers sponsorship to designers working at the cutting edge of fashion in New York, London, and Paris. Swarovski provides members of the Collective with crystal, encouraging them to use the product in innovative ways within fashion design. Without the handcuffs of financial restrictions, designers can explore and exploit the full potential of this exceptional creative ingredient.
More than 150 designers have benefited from the program and the roll call reads like a who’s who list of some of the most exciting names to have emerged over the past decade and a half, including powerhouse designers like Alexander Wang, Christopher Kane, Mary Katrantzou and Erdem. Swarovski has extended its reach to nurturing talent during its most nascent stage—at school. From the company’s scholarship programs at Central Saint Martins and Parsons The New School for Design, to its support for major fashion events like the CFDA Awards, ANDAM, and the British Fashion Awards, Swarovski remains closely linked with emerging designers, as part of its mission to nurture and support creativity.
