Academy Award winning costume designer Colleen Atwood, collaborates with Swarovski on NINE to create a show stopping spectacle that sparkles throughout. Over 1 million CRYSTALLIZED - Swarovski Elements are used to embellish the costumes of the all star cast.

Rob Marshall, Oscar nominated director of Chicago, presents NINE, a vibrant and provocative musical that follows the life of world famous film director Guido Contini as he reaches a creative and personal crisis of epic proportion, while balancing the numerous women in his life including his wife, his mistress, his film star muse, his confidant and costume designer, a young American fashion journalist, the whore from his youth and his mother. The original 1982 Broadway production of “NINE,” nominated for twelve Tony Awards and winning five, including Best Musical, was directed by Tommy Tune, choreographed by Thommie Walsh, starred Raúl Juliá with music and lyrics by Maury Yeston and book by Arthur Kopit. The 2003 Broadway revival of “NINE” received eight Tony Award nominations and won two, including Best Revival of a Musical.

Nadja Swarovski, Vice President of International Communication says, “Swarovski is thrilled to have collaborated with Colleen Atwood on the show stopping costumes of NINE. It is an honour for the outstanding cast to be embellished with our crystal and Colleen's artistry as a costume designer is perfectly showcased in these sparkling creations.”

Crystal adorns thirty-six costumes including a crystal mesh dress worn by Kate Hudson, a basque worn by Penélope Cruz, an evening dress worn by Nicole Kidman and twenty-five showgirl outfits in the Folies Bergeres number. The dazzling costumes feature 9 different crystal applications in 31 styles and 22 various colours.

“Swarovski has given me great support with the finest crystal materials in the world to help create the costumes in NINE.” Colleen Atwood, costume designer, NINE

From the early days of Hollywood, Swarovski has worked hand in hand with costume and set designers, creating show-stopping jewels, costumes and stage sets which capture the spotlight. The company's reputation for the highest quality and largest variety of the finest cut crystal is unchallenged on and off the silver screen, adorning sets and stars in classics such as Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, The Wizard of Oz, Breakfast at Tiffany's and more recently Moulin Rouge, Chicago, James Bond Die Another Day, Ocean's Thirteen, Dreamgirls and The Young Victoria.
