The Fashionable History of Swarovski

ruby-slippersThe history of Swarovski is a lengthy one, having been started by Daniel Swarovski in 1895. The Business of Fashion recently chatted with the crystal company founder’s great-great-granddaughter Nadja Swarovski about their famed moments, such as the ruby red slippers Judy Garland wore in The Wizard of Oz, the tiara that Audrey Hepburn donned in Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Marilyn Monroe’s memorable dress worn to sing “Happy Birthday Mr. President.” Swarovski also joined forces with the fashion industry, collaborating with designers like Christian Dior and Coco Chanel, as well as then emerging designers Rodarte and Christopher Kane. Parisians can see more on Swarovski’s history by visiting the Paris Haute Couture exhibit, running from March 2 to July 6 in the Salle Saint-Jean of the Hôtel de Ville in Paris.
