November 5 marked the debut of Harrodâs Swarovski Crystal Christmas!Â Can you believe itâ¦.50 days til Christmas?
Inspired by Swarovski, the large department store has a seven-window display featuring a glitzy woodland landscape with dazzling trees drenched with Swarovski gems.
‘We are really excited to be part of âA Crystal Christmasâ, Tamara Ralph said. ‘When I was asked to create my ultimate Swarovski gown, I was instantly inspired by the 1920âs era. I wanted to create a show-stopping and intricate piece that oozed glamour.’Â The wedding dress contains approximately 152,000 Swarovski crystal stones. The gown workforce consisted of more than 25 couturiers working hundreds of hours to completion.
Swarovski will have a pop-up store in four of the seven windows, selling jewelry, including that from the Atelier Swarovski collection.
Check out the display windowsâ¦.
I personally thought that the display seemed a bit dark, missing the true meaning of Christmas.Â After writing this article, I revisited the web site where I found the news and found LOTS of comments from readers who seemed quite turned off by the display.Â Â Some adjectives and phrases posted by readers include âscaryâ, âbizarreâ, âdepressingâ,Â âinducing nightmaresâ,Â and âcreepyâ.
Sometimes pictures donât do justice to the actual live displayâ¦.Iâd be interested to see it personally, but really cannot seeing as it is on a different continent than I live.
In any case, I hope that it is the success that Swarovski and Harrods are hoping for.
