Bedazzled!

Sometimes i think that if you want to sell something to somebody in the Middle East you only need 3 things:

1.  whatever it is you are trying to sell

2.  hot glue gun

3.  SWAROVSKI CRYSTALS!

You take your rusty-trusty glue gun, hot glue a pound or two of crystals onto the goods - et voile!  Done and done! 

Well, at least that was an idea behind "Swarovski Elements" promotion - or how they prefer to call it "an initiative". 

Back in October of last year,various Middle Eastern and some European designers - Christian Louboutin among them - were invited to incorporate crystals with their creations.

The results of this collaboration, which includes everything from crystal adorned false eyelashes to tea cups to yachts, were then compiled into a fashion/lifestyle collection named "Jawaher". 

Coincidentally, "Jawaher" means "precious stone".


Naturally, Jawaher was launched in dazzling-bedazzling Dubai first and then in London.

Never knew about their love for shinny things. Good info. Thank you.

Btw, the model looks so beautiful - she doesn't need blings. She could be wearing a rice sack and still look stunning!

I'm sort of in love with Swarovski, and I think I'll try that.
