Gilt Groupe to Sell Swarovski CFDA Designs!Jul 20, 2010 @ 6:28 pm
Swarovski and Gilt Groupe have joined fashionable forces—today, starting at noon EST, the glittering Swarvoski CFDA Collection created for the 2010 CFDA Awards will be available for purchase exclusively on Gilt.com. (Note: if you haven’t joined Gilt Groupe yet, you’ll need to get on it before the sale goes live). The coveted, one-of-a-kind pieces from designers like Prabal Gurung (white dress, far right), Alexander Wang, Jason Wu (blush dress, right) and Dana Lorenz (necklace) are starting at around $1200 and will be awarded to the fastest-fingered online shopper. And if the pieces’ rarity doesn’t have you sold, the charitable bent will: All proceeds from this one-time sale will benefit the CFDA Foundation’s Educational Initiatives, which provide support and resources for aspiring designers at the high-school and collegiate levels.
