Everyone wants to know about Victoria's Secret

Every time they walk the ramp in wings they create a flutter and this was no different. Victoria's Secret went to Shanghai for the first time to showcase their dazzling spectacle with angel Elsa Hosk presenting the Swarovski look. Swarovski marks its 15 year of partnership of crystal anniversary with Swarovski.

Swarovski started adding sparkling fantasy and glamour to the iconic lingerie brand since 2003, and continues to be the exclusive provider of crystal embellishments for the show.. Since 2003, Swarovski has adorned the lingerie, wings, footwear and jewelry for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show with dazzling crystals. For 2017, the show dazzled with over 1 million crystals from Swarovski.

 

The Swarovski Look

For its customary Swarovski Look, this year the focus was on the Nomadic Adventure section with a breathtaking custom outfit. Swedish model Elsa Hosk was chosen as the Victoria’s Secret Angel wearing the crystal showpiece. The lavish creation - a riot of sparkling fiery hues—red, yellow, gold, orange is designed by Paris-based couturier Serkan Cura. The look is embellished with over 275,000 crystals from Swarovski, the wings weigh 14lbs (6.5kg) and are made using 200 yards (183m) of woven ribbon and pavé crystals, finished off with a crystallized wing harness and hand-beaded jewelry.Over 29 crystal effects and colors were used in the design, more than in any previous year’s show designs. Crystal effects included the new Citrine Shimmer, Hyacinth Shimmer, and Light Siam Shimmer; Crystal Aurore Borealis, Crystal Iridescent Green, Crystal Luminous, Green, Crystal Metallic Sunshine, Crystal Paradise Sunshine and Crystal Volcano. Colors such as Chrysolite Opal, Crystal, Citrine, Dark Moss Green, Emerald, Fireopal, Fuchsia, Hyacinth, Indian Siam, Jet, Jonquil, Light Colorado Topaz, Light Siam, Light Topaz, Red Magma, Sunflower, Tangerine, Topaz, and Yellow Opal.

Serkan Cura developed his couture skills with Jean-Paul Gautier, establishing his own label in 2013 and making his name with spectacular winged creations.He has since showcased collections at Paris Haute Couture and created multiple runway looks for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show since 2013.
