Swarovski is joining the celebration for the 100th anniversary of The Walt Disney Company by joining forces with Disney 100 Years of Wonder. As part of the collaborations, Swarovski’s Global Creative Director, Giovanna Engelbert, is contributing a replica of the bespoke solid crystal slipper created for Disney’s 2015 Cinderella live action movie to Make-A-Wish.
The slipper is made from solid Aurora Borealis crystal and took a team of eight technicians 150 hours to make. It features 221 facets and radiates a magical shimmer.
Giovanna Engelbert said she was inspired to recreate the slipper for Disney100 because it is “the most famous shoe in the world” and “full of magic.” She also said she was honoured to participate in the collaboration and to support Make-A-Wish.
In addition to the slipper, Swarovski will be releasing a new collection of jewellery and home décor products later this year. Inspired by Disney characters, the collection, called Disney100 x Swarovski, features three of Disney’s most iconic characters – Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and Minnie Mouse.
The pieces in the collection are handcrafted in Austria with Swarovski’s signature crystal. They are designed with a meticulous attention to detail and feature a variety of colours and finishes. The collection includes necklaces, earrings, bracelets, figurines, and home décor items.
The Disney100 x Swarovski collection is a shining testament to almost 20 years of creative collaboration between Swarovski and Disney. It is a celebration of the magic of Disney and the creativity of Swarovski. The collection is sure to bring joy to fans of both brands!
