Flip through the recent issues of fashion magazines and you will find countless sparkling shopping pages and editorials.

“It’s time to sparkle” says Grazia. “Disco diva” says Vogue. “The Glitz and The Glamour” says Elle Collections.

“Fashion is at once both caterpillar and butterfly. Be a caterpillar by day and a butterfly at night … there must be dresses that crawl and dresses that fly.”Coco Chanel
