Miranda Kerr has revealed that her new role as a designer for Swarovski came about after she made a joke about it to the company’s creative director.
She told You magazine: ”Nathalie [Colin, the company’s creative director] said she has 21 people from all over the world working on the design team.
”And I said, ‘What about Australia?’ And she answered, ‘No, we don’t have anyone from Australia!’
”I was being cheeky, kind of joking, thinking, ‘Oh! Maybe I could be the Australian designer!’ And she was, like, ‘That’s a great idea.”’
Miranda’s collection features two lines – Diapason and Duo – with charms representing brilliance, love, joy, spirit, strength and grace and while she loved the work, she admitted that not all of her ideas made it into production.
”I wanted to do the collection based on chakras, but some other designer had already done that.
”We changed a few things, and we compromised. With every little detail I would say, ‘This should be like this, this should be like that,’ and we’d go back and forth.”
