We would like to thank SSAFW for the opportunity of letting us be part of this year’s event. Once again the VIP/Media badges were proudly worn by all.
Our stand also created a lot of excitement about the sparkling crystals.
CRYSTAL FORUM in association with Swarovski and Sanlam SA Fashion Week proudly presents the Swarovski Media Cocktail Party which was held at the very popular “8” restaurant in Sandton.

It is always a delight to be involved with local designers such as Julian, Martin Peens and especially Norman Callan, who exceeded our expectations with his innovative use of SWAROVSKI® CRYSTALS. His creations were truly crystalised in the most magnificent way.
We hope to be able to continue this great relationship with both SSAFW as well as our local designers and couturiers.
