Swarovski has unveiled Stephen Webster’s stunning design for this year’s Vienna Opera Ball tiara. Entitled ‘Fly By Night’, the sparkling diadem is wrought in a classically romantic style with a subtle contemporary edge that is unmistakably Webster’s.
The award-winning British jeweller, whose beautifully crafted and fearlessly creative pieces have attracted a celebrity clientele including Madonna, Johnny Depp and Kate Moss, drew his inspiration from the nocturnal winged creatures found within enchanted fairytale forests.
Swarovski’s collaboration with Stephen Webster this year will continue the tradition whilst adding a touch of modernity and a fashion forward twist to the stately proceedings. As Webster put it, he envisaged his tiara as a “regal and chic” adornment for the Opera Ball’s glamorous young divas.
