Launched in 2010, the World Jewelry Facets Exhibition (WJF) is the glittering result of years of industry networking, in line with Swarovski’s long-held philosophy of supporting and celebrating the world’s best artistry and craftsmanship. This rich 115-year-old creative heritage was once again given a bespoke platform in Beijing this May in a presentation of exquisite pieces from the crème de la crème of jewelry design.
Swarovski was delighted to exhibit a covetable selection of beautiful showpieces, created by upcoming and established fashion jewelry designers, encompassing the entire aesthetic spectrum, from decorative opulence (tumbling garland-style necklaces) to sculptural sophistication (geometric, futuristic collars and bejeweled breastplates). The pieces were expertly curated to give an eclectic, super-chic glimpse of contemporary style, while models brought the whole event to bright and brilliant life.
High-end couture jewelry creations and leading-edge designs were on display from talents such as France’s Hélène Zubeldia, Philippe Ferrandis and Jacques Fath, Brazil’s Camila Klein and Caleidoscópio; Israel’s Dori Csengeri and Ben Amun from the US, to name a few of the impressive designers at the top of their craft.
Visitors and guests (including Hong Kong actress Michele Reis) could also feast their eyes on bespoke Fall/Winter 2012/13 designer collections, which are available for purchase at the SWAROVSKI CRYSTALLIZED™ concept store in Shanghai.
