Applications are now open for the 2016/2017 Swarovski Collective, an initiative founded to celebrate and nurture new and established fashion design talent. The programme encourages and challenges fashion talent to push the boundaries of crystal use, and will provide year-long financial and product support to successful applicants showing across New York, London, Milan and Paris fashion weeks. Swarovski Collective will culminate with the selection of one designer to win the prestigious Swarovski Collective award, celebrating the most innovative use of crystal.
Throughout the year designers will collaborate with Swarovski in key campaigns and communication, staging key events and further creative collaborations, and Collective members will also benefit from support with retail partnerships. Applications must be submitted no later than Friday May 20, 2016.
