London Fashion Week shines in Swarovski

Who doesn’t have Swarovski yet, should buy some. That’s what the designers presented at Fashion Week in London seem to suggest us. Swarovski accessories have been integrated into many collections, even where you would have expected last. Semiprecious stones were embroidered not only in fine and precious dresses, but also in knitted sweaters or trench sites. The message is simple: no matter how casual you dress this year, it doesn’t hurt to add some preciousness in the clothes you choose. Take a look at Craig Lawrence’s collection, where Swarovski elements are sewn in knitted sweaters and dresses in a unique combination. Erdem uses fine beads sewn on brocard, tweed and lace.

And if you want to see fabulous dresses where Swarovski jewelry go hand in hand with organza and lace, create three-dimensional images, or mimic overloaded prints, see Marios Schwab and Giles collections. I almost feel like going to a party with the most beautiful dress I have just looking at them.

London Fashion Week gathers other important international fashion names such as Moschino Cheap and Chic, House of Holland, Stella McCartney, Vivienne Westwood Red Label, or MCQ Alexander McQueen, and guess what? We’ll keep you updated with the collections.
