SS 2013 COLLECTION

“I am delighted and honored to be working with Swarovski once more this season. For this Spring/Summer 2013 collection I was very inspired by adornment and jewelry from different time periods and cultures. Working with Swarovski Elements helped me turn my ideas into reality.” – Joseph Altuzarra

 

AW 2010 COLLECTION

"This season I was thinking of the dichotomy between myths and fairy tales and the fast paced urban world. I used some tone on tone CRYSTALLIZED - Swarovski Elements on languid long dresses to evoke trailing blood." – Joseph Altuzarra
