Dancing with Lights

Hussein Chalayan

Hussein Chalayan’s collection for the Swarovski Spring 2008 show ended with a roar of applause and a standing ovation. To express the change of seasons, Chalayan created airborne drama with clouds of steam and an outlet that produced volcanic eruptions. The designer collaborated with Nick Knight from SHOWStudio to create monumental pieces that displayed a truly magnificent interplay of light. Initially, the lasers point towards the Swarvoski crystals to glow like lava and later shoot outwards to become laser prisms and interact with surrounding mirrors. It was a fine moment for both Swarovski and Hussein Chalayan.
