Twinkle Twinkle Swarovski Crystal....
Who doesn’t love a little bling, especially on the most important day of your life? Your wedding day is your day to shine, sparkle like a diamond and be the bell of the ball. Both Kenneth Pool and Lazaro have the special gift of creating opulent and unique gowns using Swarovski crystals that are hand embroidered and placed strategically on their gowns.
Founded in 2003 by Amsale Aberra, the Kenneth Pool label has been long recognized for its embodiment of fantasy and drama with its luxurious fabrics and exquisite bead work.
Each gown encapsulates the essence of the Kenneth Pool label: Ultimate femininity combined with sexy, lavish and unapologetic glamour. Wrap your waist with a three-inch band of Swarovski crystal that is delicately hand sewn by Amsale’s team in her New York City Atelier. You’ll feel the allure. The crystal embroidery is used to accent a woman’s shape. Adding the crystal deliberately to the natural waist, just under the bust line or as a broach accent piece will highlight your small waist, long legs or feminine curves. Some gowns feature detachable belts, which make a striking and dramatic addition to a cocktail dress after your big day. Although you may never wear your wedding dress again, the crystal belt is a piece that can re-create the magic of your wedding day time and time again.
Lazaro enjoys blending ultra-glamourous vintage details, stunning floral embellishments and his signature crystal hand beading to create a one of a kind masterpiece. A Lazaro bride appreciates the intricate detail of a hand-beaded crystal bodice. Bringing attention close to the face allows a bride to be the centrepiece of the day. The beadwork is often woven into soft tulle or sheer netting to create a romantic and feminine look. The crystals catch the light in such a way; you can’t help but be mesmerized.
