Celebrated radio personality, Kofi Okyere Darko (KOD) has jetted off to Dubai to show his unflinching support to his wife, Ophelia Crossland, as the iconic fashion designer showcases her amazing designs at the 2017 Swarovski Sparkling Couture Infinity Exhibition.
Ophelia Crossland is the only African and first Ghanaian to showcase at the world event alongside over 50 other world designers.
The event opened on October 25, 2017 at the Madinat Arena in Dubai. This year’s inspiration draws on the idea of the infinite possibilities for creativity and innovation afforded by crystals from Swarovski.
More than 40 haute couturiers and 56 designers from 17 countries have been invited to participate, each chosen for their design excellence in segments such as jewellery, interiors, apparel (couture and modest wear), shoes and bags.
Each designer will be presenting one piece created exclusively for the event, which highlights outstanding innovative use of Swarovski crystals.
Swarovski is the world leader in precision-cut crystals for over 120 years.
