Swarovski store window with stage setting by Austrian designer Susanne Bisovsky
Yesterday, the new Swarosvki display window at the Kristallwelten Store Vienna at Kärntnerstrasse 24 was presented by Carla Rumler, Cultural Director Swarovski (at the image, left), and designer Susanne Bisovsky whose couture pieces are staged lampshade-like in the setting of a Viennese salon which makes think of times of Sigmund Freud at the turn of the 19th to the 20th century.
Susanne Bisovsky (bio) counts to Austria's most important designers; especially her haute couture items which reference traditional European trachten (folk costumes) are signature for her work. The designer's main achievement is the successful transfer of Europe's cultural heritage into contemporary luxury fashion. Bisovsky's art space 'Salon for three Viennese women' is also the visualization of a 'Light and Shadow' story about the fine feeling of the elegant Viennese woman for the many facets of crystal; a story which contains several threads and double-meanings.
Bisovsky says about her installation at Swarovski Kristallwelten Store Wien (source) "I’d like to show what a female designer living in Vienna has to say about Vienna, despite living and working in Vienna."
