Held as part of the Coutts London Jewellery Week, the party showcased Swarovski's latest collection of show-stopping couture jewellery.
Held at the Phillips de Pury Gallery in Victoria, guests including Jaime Winstone (pictured), Rosamund Pike and Lulu Guinness walked a crystal-strewn carpet to watch the show. Collaborations with everyone from fashion designers Christopher Kane, Marios Schwab and Julien Macdonald to architect Zaha Hadid made their way down the catwalk, and the creators had clearly let their imaginations run wild. An enormous Indian headdress, crystal antlers complete with small birds and a technicolour Robo-Cop-meets-skeleton suit all made an appearance.
Post show the assembled fashion fans sipped champagne into the night to a set by society DJ Alssandra Nedrum - sporting, naturally, pink, crystal encrusted head-phones.
Want to take a look for yourself? An exhibition of the creations opens to the public today at Phillips de Pury, 9 Howick Place.
