ARUSHI COUTURExCHARLES LU x SWAROVSKI SPARKLING COUTURE 2017
On October 2017, Swarovski hosted the Swarovski Sparkling Couture event which showcases more than 40 international designers. Amongst them, ARUSHI COUTURExCHARLES LU were chosen to represent Dubai, and the middle east. This year’s inspiration draws from the main theme, Infinity. The name ‘Arushi’ translates to sunset and brightness. The designer, Charles Lu was drawn to light and it's infinite concepts. Light is weightless, strong, and can cut through darkness while being ethereal. Drawing from how light refracts materials and creates rays that emanate from the body with moments of strong linearity, the jumpsuit and headpiece here designed around this notion.
