These Sexy New Swarovski Windows Were Designed By Local Students!

Who could resist a night of thousand-megawatt sparkles in celebration of new work by Chicago students? This week, Swarovski and Nick Cave joined up to unveil a stunning window display constructed by the SAIC’s graduate students. Kicking off the their Fashion 2012 events, the event had more than enough shine to draw a crowd. If the brightness of the window display is any indication of what’s to come in during The Walk 2012, then the Swarovski sponsored event will surely be a delight. Don’t forget to snag your tickets ASAP because Thursday’s show will feature more gorgeous Swarovski pieces and student work as well as hometown hero Cynthia Rowley with her guests Bill Powers, Jerry Saltz and Mickey Boardman. Check out our instagram gallery of these glittery windows below, then stop by the Swarovski store on Michigan Avenue to get an eye-full for yourself.
