Victoria’s Secret Angel Elsa Hosk will wear this year’s 2018 Dream Angels Fantasy Bra designed and made exclusively by Atelier Swarovski and crafted with more than 2100 Swarovski Created Diamonds and Topaz, with the fashion show airing on television on 2 December.
Victoria’s Secret has partnered with Atelier Swarovski for the first time to create the Fantasy Bra, which will be worn by model Elsa Hosk at the 2018 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in New York City. Also, for the first time, the Fantasy Bra will place sustainability centre stage. With this year’s design, Atelier Swarovski shines a light on conscious luxury, creating a glamorous bra and body chain set with Swarovski Created Diamonds and Topaz. Valued at $1 million the elaborate design took four craftsman and 930 hours to make, incorporating more than 2100 Swarovski Created Diamonds and totalling 71.05 carats with the pear shape Swarovski Created Diamond centre stone weighing in at 2.03 carats. The bra’s casing is also set in sterling silver. Elsa also wears an Atelier Swarovski by Christopher Kane necklace and bangles in crystal to accent her Dream Angel’s look.
Atelier Swarovski by Mary Katrantzou and Atelier Swarovski by Christopher Kane jewellery will also be worn down the runway with various looks showcased during the show. Nadja Swarovski, Member of the Swarovski Executive Board, commented: “We are delighted to collaborate with Victoria’s Secret on the 2018 Dream Angels Fantasy Bra. This stunning handcrafted Atelier Swarovski piece features thousands of Swarovski Created Diamonds set alongside responsibly sourced topaz. We hope it provides a bold new vision of luxury – mixing glamour and innovative materials – when it hits the runway at this legendary show.”
Atelier Swarovski’s first fine jewellery collection, made with Swarovski Created Diamonds, premiered at the 2017 Academy Awards in partnership with Red Carpet Green Dress, promoting responsible fashion on the most glamorous stage. Through this partnership with Victoria’s Secret, Atelier Swarovski showcases Swarovski’s heritage of sustainability and innovation and furthers the company’s journey to becoming a leader in conscious luxury.
