SAIC kicks off at Swarovski with some major BLING!
In preparation for the WALK 2012 SAIC fashion show, Swarovski invited Nick Cave, Art Institute Fashion Department Chair and his students to design a window installation at Swarovski’s Flagship store on Michigan Ave. The fashion elite of Chicago came together for the unveiling event where they sipped wine and tried on Swarovski jewels. The window display featured two blooming flowers that were made out of Swarovski jewelry.
