"We become so obsessed with a theme that we get entrenched in it and then we exhaust ourselves"

Preciosa returned for its third season of New York Fashion Week with the designer duo The Blonds. The nighttime fashion show inspired by Egypt took place on September 16 at MADE at Milk Studios in New York City. This very girly, sparkly show was attended by such stars as Bette Midler, Kelly Osbourne, Nigel Barker and many others celebrities.

Known for crafting exquisitely distinctive stage costumes, The Blonds continuously choose Preciosa for their pristine quality and extensive array of colors and shapes. The Blonds rely on Preciosa’s sparkling, lead-free crystals to enhance their luxurious, star-studded garments.

“We become so obsessed with a theme that we get entrenched in it and then we exhaust ourselves,” said David Blond. And it is easy to see with such highly embellished costumes using more than 173 thousand crystals to accentuate the Egyptian outfits fit for Cleopatra herself.

The Blonds have left their shining impression on many Hollywood performers such as Arianna Grande, Fergie, Madonna and most recently, Miley Cyrus. Pop stars love donning the iconic, attention-grabbing Preciosa crystal-encrusted bodysuits created by Phillipe and David.

The Preciosa name was introduced into the North American hemisphere in 1950, when it began bringing its vast knowledge of crystal component use in fashion and jewelry design to U.S. companies. The company is best known for its fine, lead-free MAXIMA crystals, on top of its broad range of precision-cut crystals, beads, and nacre pearls.
