FOR SPICE WORLD TOUR
● One million Swarovski crystals
● Over 100 hand-embellished Swarovski crystal costumes
London, May 25, 2019 – Swarovski has collaborated with award-winning costume designer Gabriella Slade to add sparkle to the Spice Girls’ Spice World Stadium Tour (May 24 – June 15). One million Swarovski crystals illuminate the stage as the iconic pop group bring back Girl Power.
Costume Designer Gabriella Slade worked closely with the Spice Girls to create a contemporary spin on their trademark style, drawing on the DNA of their 90s heyday to create costumes for their sold out UK and Ireland stadium tour.
Gabi devised costumes unique for every act in the show, using Swarovski crystals and pearls to add sparkle and a sense of fun to over 100 costumes for the Spice Girls and their backing dancers.
The show opens with a reimagining of the Spice Girls’ most iconic looks. Gabi captures the essence of each Spice Girl, amplifying and elevating their signature style with thousands of Swarovski crystals: a shimmering pink mini dress for Baby (Emma Bunton); a sparkling Union Jack gown for Ginger (Geri Halliwell); a glittering animal-print jumpsuit for Scary (Melanie Brown); and a shining Olympian outfit for Sporty (Melanie Chisholm).
The exclusive looks, including shoes and bespoke accessories, were hand-embellished with individual Swarovski crystals and pearls by a team of artisans.
