On the crystal brands own web site, there is Swarovski News about a Hollywood-style event taking place at the end of October, 2011. This designer signing event is a gala occasion for avid Swarovski collectors.
The announcement states that this Swarovski crystal gala is October 29, 2011 9:00 – 5:00 at the Sofitel Hotel in Los Angeles, CA. The designers attending are Anton Hirzinger and Heinz Tabertshofer. Anton Hirzinger is the designer who created Swarovski Siku, (2011 SCS member edition), the Polar Bear Cubs that accompany Siku (purchased separately) , and the Arctic Hare (the special event piece).
Planned activities at the Hollywood event include:
Having Swarovski crystal figurines signed by these two incredible designers of course!
Naturally, plenty of opportunity to purchase more Swarovski crystal!
Viewing of the new Crystal Myriad, the Swarovski Longwang Dragon
Create a Walk of Fame star design
A Studio game show, complete with prizes (Swarovski crystal?)
1940’s cocktail party
And LOTS more
This truly sounds like an event to remember!
The Crystal Myriad Longwang Dragon sounds interesting. The other Swarovski Crystal Myriads have been limited editions and retail for $8000 – $16,000 USD. I am believing that this new Crystal Myriad in 2011 will follow suit being a limited edition. As far as price goes, that will likely be a function of the production time and quantity produced. But since the other Crystal Myriads have been out of my budget range, I don’t expect I’ll be adding the Longwang Dragon to my collection either.
Reservations are required and registration deadline is October 21. Event cost $55 for the afternoon and dinner for SCS members is additional.
More details on this exciting Swarovski event is available on the crystal brand’s website. I wish I were a lot closer to LA so that I could be there. I’ll be thinking of all the attending lucky Swarovski crystal collectors on that day!
