It's petit, it's noir, and it's crystallized!
Keen on little black dresses? Well, here's something for you then: Swarovski Elements
invited a highly respectable bunch of designers (among them: Marios Schwab) to create show-stopping one off pieces matching the "petite robe noire" criteria. The dresses will be shown in an exhibition at Palazzo Pozzo di Borgo (51, rue de l'Université in 75007 Paris) - the opening takes place on January 27 during Paris Haute Couture and will be open to the public starting on Jan. 28. The travelling exhibition will then move on to Beijing and celebrate its grand finale in New York City in autumn. Sparkling indeed...

What a delight and what a way to speed off into the new year: usually, Vienna Auto Show
