Giovanna Battaglia Engelbert Joins Swarovski As New Creative Director

Swarovski has announced today that they’ve engaged Giovanna Battaglia Engelbert as their first ever Global Creative Director.

The appointment is a part of the iconic brand’s new business model, along with its reinvigorated vision and growth strategy. Which I’m sure is something most fashion houses should be doing right now. Considering retail’s recent global hit doesn’t appear to be recovering.

Giovanna’s remarkable track record in the industry, and her compelling point of view, will see her explore new frontiers.

Robert Buchbauer, Swarovski’s CEO said, “Our 125 year history is witness for the power of our company to transform and reinvent itself. And I’m now pleased to welcome such a brilliant creative mind, and strong female leader to our company.

“With Giovanna’s remarkable track record in the industry, and her compelling point of view, she will explore new frontiers. Becoming a vital part in writing the next chapter of Swarovski’s success story.”

And personally, I couldn’t agree more! As Giovanna has been an international style icon for some time now and clearly has what it takes to take Swarovski to the next level.

For decades now Swarovski has been illuminating the world of fashion, design, entertainment and the whole creative industry.

Moving forward, Giovanna will oversee the full creative direction of the brand and reimagine the product portfolio across all divisions. With the first products designed by Giovanna to showcase in Swarovski’s Spring/Summer 2021 collection.

Giovanna said, “For decades now Swarovski has been illuminating the world of fashion, design, entertainment and the whole creative industry. I’m thrilled to be leading the new creative vision. They’re such a cultural powerhouse.”

Vicky began her career writing fashion, lifestyle and music related articles for a diverse range of print and digital media outlets. Shortly thereafter – upon discovering that a vast majority of the fashion industry were being out-shadowed by the commercial conglomerates of the world – Vicky (who equally grew tired of having no creative freedom herself) set out to create her own digital publishing platform that focused on promoting the incredible talents of all creatives within the fashion industry. Which is how The Fashion Catalyst began in 2009.
