Powell is a long time Swarovski collaborator and worked with technicians at the firm’s Austrian headquarters to bring her vision to life—a solid crystal with a 6-inh heel and 221 facets.  A team of eight worked on the development and creation of the shoes, taking approximately 150 hours and six versions.  

For me, Swarovski’s involvement adds the essential elements of glamour and enchantment necessary to bring the characters to life in a magical way.
