Swarovski | book of dreams: volume iii

by Larry Armstrong-Kizzee

It’s hard not to enjoy something covered in Swarovski crystals, whether it be Rihanna’s chest at the 2014 CFDA Awards, or a NYFW party inspired by the diamonds themselves. To Launch the third volume of their art-book series, Book of Dreams, Swarovski and Garage Magazine teamed up to make an event as magical as their diamonds, with a cocktail ornamented exhibition followed by a after party featuring the syrupy-sweet mixes of DJ Honey Dijon. The book itself features several different mediums and artists , all inspired by a central theme: Swarovski. From Nail Artist Jenny Bui to Photographer Nadine Ijewere, the book and accompanying art installations all represented diverse interpretations of the intricate and elegant ethos of Swarovski itself. Fittingly so, the event was studded with stars like Jasmine Sanders, Petra Collins, Cody Simpson, and Brian Atwood, all of which shined bright like the diamonds they are.
