SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS ™ has partnered with one of New York’s most notable retailers, Henri Bendel, on a series of Fashion’s Night out activities ranging from crystallized makeovers by Frédéric Fekkai to a dazzling tattoo parlor, each transforming the store into a crystal wonderland making the acclaimed 5th Avenue flagship sparkle from head-to-toe. Shoppers will be able to get a head start on prepping for their evening, beginning at 3 p.m., with crystallized beauty makeovers by Frédéric Fekkai. Services include manicures and hair styling, all infused with the sparkle of SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS. After being pampered, visitors can purchase exclusive Fashion’s Night Out gear, including limited-edition FNO shirts adorned with black diamond and fuchsia crystals.
Adding more sparkle to the night’s festivities, the Austrian crystal company will transform the first floor of Henri Bendel for Fashion’s Night Out – the focal point is an opulent Swarovski Crystal Palace chandelier, titled “Cascade” by Vincent Van Duysen, standing 14 feet tall waiting to greet shoppers in the atrium as they enter off 5th Avenue.
For the past 75 years, Swarovski has had a deep-rooted history in stage and screen projects, ranging from movies to Broadway and beyond. To celebrate Swarovski’s commitment to the arts, a special display of eight costumes made with SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS, from Phantom of the Opera, designed by Tony Award winning costume designer Alexandra Byrne, and NINE, designed by Oscar winning costume designer Colleen Atwood, will be a part of the décor. The dazzling interiors and costumes will be on exhibit beyond New York Fashion Week at Henri Bendel, culminating September 19.
Special Henri Bendel tattoos made with SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS will also be available for purchase throughout the night and artists will be on hand to apply them to guests.
