Swarovski has added a touch of its signature sparkle to Disney's centennial celebrations with a stunning creation - a replica of Cinderella's iconic glass slipper made entirely from crystal. Initially crafted in 2015, the shoe is now presented as part of Disney's "Create 100" project marking its 100th anniversary. Given the magnitude of the celebration, we can expect an influx of similar collaborations shortly.
The beautiful slipper is a masterpiece of craftsmanship and artistry. It has been fashioned from a single piece of crystal by a team of eight artisans who spent nearly 150 hours meticulously crafting it. The result is a piece that boasts 221 shimmering facets and is adorned with Swarovski crystals and a golden butterfly. Adding to the ethereal beauty of the slipper, it has been coated with Swarovski's trademark Aurora Borealis shimmer.
With this collaboration, Swarovski pays a spectacular tribute to one of Disney's most beloved fairy tales, demonstrating once again its unwavering commitment to innovation, craftsmanship, and storytelling. The glass slipper is more than just a collectible item; it represents the magic, dreams, and creativity that Disney has championed for a century.
This project intertwines the narratives of two iconic brands, Swarovski and Disney, to mark a significant milestone in Disney's history, while reminding us of the timeless charm and enchantment of Cinderella's tale.
