Gifted to the dazzling debutantes of 2020, the tiara envisioned by the French designer took Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s ‘The Magic Flute’ and the opera’s iconic character of the Queen of the Night as its shining inspiration. The sparkling design features 72 clear-colored crystals, with three bursts of star-shaped stones, and a line of circular crystals decorating the base. This glittering rendition of the Swarovski tiara illustrates the magical allure of music and the night sky.
“I felt truly honored when I was asked to design a tiara for the Vienna Opera Ball,” Christian Lacroix commented. “I have always loved working with crystals in fashion and in my ballet projects. Without Swarovski’s crystals these show costumes would have never been the same.”
Swarovski is once again proud to celebrate its continuing support of creative partnerships, demonstrating its longstanding commitment to artistic tradition and culture. The enduring link between Swarovski and the world-famous Vienna Opera Ball was first formed back in the 1950s. Swarovski has partnered with a different international designer each year to add sparkle to the debutantes’ tiaras in remarkable ways.
The Vienna Opera Ball will take place on February 20, 2020 at the Vienna State Opera.
