They’re among eight brilliant women from around the region.

Last Friday, jewelry brand Swarovski celebrated Brilliance for All with a gala night at the St. Regis Hotel ballroom in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Fashion influencers, VIPs, and press from around the region were invited to view five of the dresses from the Fall/Winter 2018 Couture collection that were exhibited at Paris Fashion Week, along with the fantasy-themed Crystal Tales jewelry pieces and the exclusive Atelier Swarovski designer collaborations.

One of the highlights of the evening was when Creative Director Nathalie Colin called to stage the honorees of the Swarovski Brilliant 8: A Tribute to Women Who Sparkle. “Diamonds are for royalty. I want to create a diamond for every woman,” said Daniel Swarovski famously in 1895. His wish to help make every woman sparkle has come into the modern age where, beyond having adorned women with dazzling jewelry for over 120 years, the brand he founded has chosen to highlight multifaceted female talents who are brilliant in their own right. It was a proud moment to see journalist Marie Lozano and fashion content creator Nicole Andersson recognized together with six other women achievers from across Southeast Asia. 


Get to know each of them below and be inspired by their goals and passions:
