Creatively designed by Sumant Jayakrishnan, sections of the venue were decked with two bespoke yet dramatic chandelier installations made with SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS.
The focal installation, commemorating and glorifying the Indian jewellery talent, was a dramatic and distinguished 14-feet tall cascading chandelier made with SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS housing a stunning jewellery piece made with SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS by an international designer.
Another creative installation using the visual play of parallel glass panels juxtaposed and studded with SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS added to creating a magnificent sparkling look. On the ramp, the glamour and sparkle of SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS shone through brilliantly in the ramp décor of Farah Khan’s show.
