Today Swarovski is the largest global supplier of crystal to the fashion industry, and continues to work with visionaries such as Maison Martin Margiela, Viktor&Rolf and Mary Katrantzou. It is also committed to nurturing emerging creative talent at fashion schools such as Central Saint Martins and Parsons The New School for Design, and through collaborations with the CFDA and other prestigious fashion institutions.
