Who does not need a little sparkle in their lives? Over the decades Swarovski has become a house hold word to fashion followers. Boudicca collaborated with Swarovski several years ago and the next thing you knew American Express became their backer. Among the highlights from Runway  Rocks were my favorites, Lara Bohinc the London based Slovenian beauty with her Cleopatra Choker and Shaun Leane who began a partnership with Alexander McQueen nine years ago. Belle A Lier was about exploring beauty, femininity and strength in a signature thorn motif.
