I enjoyed learning of the involvement of Swarovski within the set and costume design of the film Black Swan. To see the Swarovski product used in this manner highlights it's extraordinary beauty and versatility within creative media. The production designer for Black Swan, Therese DePrez talks of how Swarovski elements elevated the set, "much like the movement in ballet, the crystals give kicks and glint no matter what direction you see them in."

"From the early days of Hollywood, Swarovski has worked hand in hand with costume and set designers, creating show-stopping jewels, costumes and sets which capture the spotlight. The company’s reputation for the highest quality and largest variety of the finest cut crystal is unchallenged on and off the silver screen, adorning sets and stars in classics such as Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, The Wizard of Oz, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and more recently The Young Victoria, NINE, and The Black Swan."
