It was a sparkling night on Sunday, December 17, as Ophelia Crossland showcased her scintillating creations made with crystals from Swarovski at the La Beach Hotel in Accra. Ophelia demonstrated the astonishing creative use of Swarovski crystals with the designs which were crafted exclusively for the exhibition. “Following the success story of my exhibition at the Swarovski event in Dubai, and subsequent Show in 17 other countries, I thought it wise to show Ghanaians how I represented our beautiful country out there, hence my decision for the exposé. In addition to the garment I exhibited, I made a collection of 16 other equally beautiful ones to add to the exposé,” Ophelia told Agoo Magazine after the exhibition.
The event brought together some of the biggest names in Ghana’s fashion and showbiz industries, as well as personalities from the corridors of power to witness Ophelia’s designs and hosted by celebrated Broadcaster Nana Aba Anamoah. During the expose, Ophelia officially received a certificate from Swarovski for an authorized branding partner for the second time due to her hard work as a great ambassador for the brand. Swarovski has been the world’s leader in precision-cut crystals for over 120 years.
Last year she was nominated as the best designer to represent the brand through her amazing designs. This gives Ophelia the rights to use the brand Crystals from Swarovski, in association with the Ophelia Crossland brand. In October 2017, she showcased her designs at the 2017 Swarovski Sparkling Couture Infinity Exhibition in Dubai. The Sunday exhibition is her first to celebrate Swarovski designs in Ghana. It was held in collaboration with Agoo Magazine.
