Swarovski CRYSTALLIZED™ and Elle Event with Designer Rodrigo Otazu

Last Tuesday, November 16th I stopped over at the SWAROVSKI CRYSTALLIZED™ Soho store for an exclusive Elle event with designer Rodrigo Otazu.

Attendees were able to get the first glimpse of Otazu's unique, statement pieces, which were available for sale that evening, along with a 15% discount on all New York designer collections. It was a really enjoyable evening with champagne and jewelry, and a special Swarovski CRYSTALLIZED™ compact was included in the gift bag.

I didn't even realize that the Swarovski CRYSTALLIZED™ CafĂ© serves dinner. I am definitely going to have to come back for that! I do love the desserts.

Here are some of Rodrigo Otazu's designs. This ring is my favorite! You can view more of Otazu's pieces at swarovski-crystallized.com.
