Swarovski unveiled their Sparkling Couture Exhibition in Dubai today, for one day only. The international crystal company has teamed up with local designers to create one-of-a-kind gowns, shoes and accessories and the results are awe-inspiring. Overall 40 designers from around the region individually created pieces that remained true to their brand's DNA, whilst intricately blending Swarovski crystals throughout the designs in bold, bright colours.

"Couture is an art form that typifies our region, and in bringing together such a diverse group of designers from across the GCC with leading names from South Asia, Swarovski underscores the mélange of talent and cultures which enriches the region," said Flemming Nielsen, Vice President Sales, Swarovski, South Asia when he addressed a VIP audience at the launch today. "With participating couturiers and accessory designers from 11 countries, it is intriguing to see the passion, attention to detail and craftsmanship that defines these designers, and the region as a whole."
