At the annual extravaganza that is the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, supermodel Elsa Hosk wore the 2018 Dream Angels Fantasy Bra designed and made exclusively by Atelier Swarovski and crafted with over 2,100 Swarovski Created Diamonds and Topaz.
This marked the first occasion that the American lingerie label is partnering with Atelier Swarovski to create the Fantasy Bra, with an additional emphasis on sustainability.
With this year’s design, Atelier Swarovski shines a light on conscious luxury, creating a glamorous bra and body chain set.
Valued at 1 million dollars the elaborate design took 4 craftsman and 930 hours to make, incorporating over 2,100 Swarovski Created Diamonds and totaling 71.05 carats with the pear shape Swarovski Created Diamond center stone weighing in at 2.03 carats. The bra's casing is also set in sterling silver.
Swarovski Created Diamonds are grown in a state-of-the-art lab yet have the same optical, chemical and physical attributes as mined diamonds – both are 100% carbon, both have the same hardness and brilliance. They are responsibly produced according to the highest environmental, safety and labor standards. The Swarovski Genuine Topaz is from traceable sources in Brazil and Sri Lanka.
Elsa also wore an Atelier Swarovski by Christopher Kane necklace and bangles in crystal to accent her Dream Angel's look.
For the first time, customers will be able to purchase a version of the Victoria’s Secret Dream Angels Fantasy Bra made with Swarovski crystals for $250 on 29 November at select Victoria's Secret stores and online at victoriassecret.com.
The 2018 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show which was staged in New York City last week will be televised on 2 December at 10pm ET on ABC.
