As you should know by now, last night was Fashion’s Night Out 2012, and as part of that, I attended the exclusive launch of the Atelier Swarovski Autumn/Winter 2012 collection at luxury department store Henri Bendel in New York City.
I was invited by Christopher Northrup, publicist extraordinaire and founder of CNPR Public Relations, and I was able to speak briefly with his client, architect and Atelier Swarovski jewelry designer, Gisue Hariri of Hariri & Hariri. Though much of the jewelry on display was geared toward women, Mrs. Hariri did mention that she’s designed some rather cool cufflinks. “Just the right amount of bling,” she said. “If you see P. Diddy, make sure to tell him about them.” I sure will!
Other designers featured in the Autumn/Winter collection include Christopher Kane, Zaldy, Greg Lynn, and Kostas Murkudis. Pieces will be available at select Swarovski US boutiques beginning September 12th.
This marks the eleventh season that Atelier Swarovski has commissioned distinctive crystal accessories from leading designers in fashion, jewelry, and architecture. It all looks like a great success to me.

And not only was agreat time had by all, but as I left the store, a young woman gave me a discount card for 20% off my next purchase at Henri Bendel. If only I had a lady in my life to use this for … hmmm … Ha!
