Just last week, Sir Elton John has begun a three-year residency in Las Vegas in the “Million Dollar Piano Show”.

The Swarovski crystal glow will be present in the show as this world-famous singer, tailor and personal friend Richard James, and Swarovski have teamed up creating the most glittering wardrobe ever.  The wardrobe consists of 15 suits, 22 shirts, and 24 pairs of sunglasses worn throughout the concert performances and a sparkling cape worn during the finale.

This YouTube video features Nadja Swarovski and Richard James and their attire collaboration for this incredible artist, Elton John.  In the video, they tell us about the stunning 1.7 million Swarovski Elements stones that were used in the custom costume creation.

Noteworthy quotes from the singer and the crystal brand….

Sir Elton John: “I’ve always been a huge admirer of Swarovski and to work with them in this capacity is a dream come true.”

Nadja  Swarovski,  Member  of  the  Executive  Board,  Swarovski  Crystal  Business,  commented:  “I’ve been a fan of Elton’s music for years and so I’m especially excited about Swarovski’s involvement in the ‘Million Dollar Piano’ through working  with  Richard  James  on  these  extraordinary  costumes.  Elton  is one of the most legendary performers and Richard is one of Britain’s best tailors – together they have created a dazzling spectacle that will take audiences’ breath away.”
