Swarovski + American Cancer Society, all things bling meet a charitable cause. This fall, Swarovski tells us “22 Ways to Say Black” by partnering up with 22 fashion designers who have each created a one-of-a-kind ionic black dress featuring the brand’s loose crystal. These sparkling custom creations will be auctioned off for charity during New York Fashion Week this September and all proceeds benefit ACS. In addition, Swarovski has partnered with Philips de Pury auction house to create a luxe book which catalogs each of the designs with all proceeds also going to ACS. I’ve had a sneak peak of the book and wouldn’t mind at all if each of these 22 Ways To Say Black were hanging in my wardrobe this fall. Every lady needs a little black dress. Or 2.
Here’s a list of the 22 designers participating in 22 Ways to Say Black:
Alberta Ferretti, Alexis Mabille, Azzaro, Boudicca, Catherine Malandrino, Diane von Furstenberg, Donna Karan, Fendi, Gaspard Yurkievich, Gianfranco Ferre, Giorgio Armani, Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci, Jean Paul Gaultier, Lanvin by Alber Elbaz, Martin Grant, Mario Schwab, Missoni, Phillip Lim, Sonia Rykiel, Thakoon, Valentino and Vivienne Westwood
