The CFDA Fashion Awards is like no other. Setting the bar higher, nominees for this year’s womenswear, menswear, and accessories categories were tasked to create pennants for their brands in honor of their nominations. The twist: each had to incorporate Swarovski crystals into their designs. How very Project Runway is that?
Now, of all the glistening sports pennants created and showcased at a launch party in New York for the awards, one crystal encrusted masterpiece caught our eye—the one created by womenswear designer nominee Brandon Maxwell, which features the image of model Gigi Hadid made out of 25,000 Swarovski crystals. WOW!! We mean, being drawn like one of Jack Dawson’s French girls is one thing, but having your portrait done out of these glittering rocks takes art to a whole new level of glam.
Here’s to hoping Gigi gets to take it home and hang it in her living room!
