Swarovski glasses are rich in heritage and portray designs that are sophisticated and trendy - making these frames a statement piece for any occasion. 

 

The Origins of Swarovski Crystals: A Revolutionary Invention in 1895

In 1895, Daniel Swarovski invented a machine for cutting and polishing crystals in Wattens, Austria, which revolutionised the crystal manufacturing industry. Swarovski quickly became a significant player in the Haute-Couture world as Charles Frederick Worth, known as the Father of Haute Couture, used Swarovski crystal balls on his ball gowns in a Trompe L'Oeil effect for his elite clientele, including Queen Victoria. 

 

During the 1920s, demand for Swarovski crystals skyrocketed. The brand began supplying illustrious designers such as Lanvin, Vionnet, and Jean Patou, who embraced the free-spirited and alluring aesthetic of jazz halls and flapper girls. By the 1950s, Swarovski crystals were used by iconic couture designers such as Coco Chanel, Elsa Schiaparelli, and Cristobal Balenciaga, who were defining the new dress codes of their eras with delicate crystal embroidery and feminine silhouettes. 

 

Today, Swarovski crystals remain an essential component of many fashion houses, including Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, and Valentino, as well as some more contemporary designers such as Alexander McQueen, Mary Katrantzou, Hussein Chalayan, and Christopher Kane. The brand has become an essential part of fashion history, as well as the future.
