Swarovski Opens On Las Vegas Strip, Featuring Starburst Light Show

SWAROVSKI CRYSTAL

WORLD’S FIRST SWAROVSKI STARBURST LIGHT SHOW SPECTACULAR DEBUTS ON LAS VEGAS STRIP

Swarovski

The Las Vegas Strip has welcomed its newest outdoor entertainment spectacle: the Swarovski Midnight Celebration at Grand Bazaar Shops. Created for Swarovski’s custom pavilion and six-story-tall Starburst, the Swarovski Midnight Celebration was designed to be the centerpiece of the new Grand Bazaar Shops, providing a unique retail and entertainment experience.

The Swarovski Midnight Celebration is a dazzling three-minute-long light-and-sound show designed to mark the dawn of a new day. The spectacle was envisioned as a way to bring New Year’s Eve-style excitement to the Strip every night of the year. The production’s focal point is the Starburst—a one-of-a-kind, 14-foot-diameter structure composed of 911 custom-cut crystal spheres designed by Swarovski and fabricated by the Young Electric Sign Company (YESCO). YESCO is renowned for having created some of Las Vegas’ most iconic neon signs; the Swarovski Starbursts represents the most contemporary, technologically advanced iteration of the city’s most famous vernacular art form now visible on the Las Vegas Strip.

Also featured in the Swarovski Midnight Celebration is a large video screen, which is  embedded into the multi-faceted façade of the Swarovski pavilion. Evocative scenes from exotic bazaars, together with the Starburst’s more than 1,800 points of LED light, are choreographed to a dramatic original score featuring enchanting beats of world music.

Representing a first for Swarovski, the 400-square-foot boutique is a free-standing pavilion whose exterior is composed of dozens of large, angular facets designed to make the structure resemble a cut crystal. Inside, the boutique boasts hand-selected finishes—such as linen, paper and burlap forms and inlays—throughout, as well as eye-catching, crystal-enhanced glass spheres playfully suspended from the ceiling. Specially crafted panels provide an artful platform for the presentation of Swarovski jewelry and décor.

In keeping with the Grand Bazaar theme, the boutique features Swarovski’s first-ever “bartering window,” allowing passersby to negotiate the price they pay for select items. Among the items slated to be featured in the barter window are limited-edition pieces such as crystallized Beats Headphones; a Martin custom-designed crystal classic acoustic guitar; a Gibson Les Paul electric guitar and crystallized white, black and pink skulls. Specific items for which visitors can barter will change from day to day.

Grand Bazaar Shops and the Swarovski boutique will be open daily from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 a.m. For more information about Grand Bazaar Shops, go to: Grandbazaarshops.com and for Swarovski, go to Swarovski.com.

Custom-designed, 14-foot-diameter Crystal Starburst Feature to Bring New Year’s Eve-style Spectacle to Strip 365 Nights a Year

 On Thursday, Feb. 26, 2015, the leading designer and producer of fashion jewelry and crystal décor objects, Swarovski, will debut a unique boutique and crystal installation at the new Grand Bazaar Shops on Las Vegas Boulevard.

Representing a first for Swarovski, the boutique is a free-standing pavilion whose exterior is composed of dozens of large, angular facets designed to make the structure resemble a cut crystal. Inside, the boutique boasts hand-selected finishes—such as linen, paper and burlap forms and inlays—from floor to ceiling, distinguishing it from every other Swarovski boutique in the world. Eye-catching lighting features crystal-enhanced glass spheres playfully suspended from the ceiling, while specially crafted panels provide an artful platform for the presentation of Swarovski jewelry and décor.

Towering above the Swarovski pavilion, a glittering 14-foot-diameter, custom-designed crystal-and-LED-light Swarovski Starburst emits 911 “rays” capped by custom-cut crystal spheres. In addition, the Starburst has more than 1,800 multi-colored, continuously changing LED lights, which scintillate brilliantly against the night sky. Fabricated by the Young Electric Sign Company (YESCO), famously associated with the design and construction of some of Las Vegas’ most iconic signs including the

“Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign, the Swarovski Starburst provides a stunning addition to the world-famous spectacle of the Las Vegas Strip.

“Swarovski is excited to be part of the unique retail environment at Grand Bazaar Shops,” said Jean-Jacques Sebbag, senior vice president, Swarovski North America Limited’s Consumer Goods Business. “We look forward to the Swarovski Starburst becoming a new icon on the Las Vegas Strip.”

The boutique encompasses 400 square feet and will showcase some of Swarovski’s most popular crystal objects, including jewelry, accessories and some Vegas-only and limited-edition pieces. In keeping with the Grand Bazaar theme, the boutique will feature Swarovski’s first-ever “bartering window,” allowing passersby to negotiate the price they ultimately pay for select items. Among the items slated to be featured in the barter window are only-in-Vegas creations such as crystallized Beats Headphones in white, black and blue; a Martin custom-designed crystal classic acoustic guitar; a Gibson Les Paul electric guitar and crystallized white, black and pink skulls. Specific items for which visitors can barter will change from day to day.

Each night at midnight, the boutique will become the focal point for the Swarovski Midnight Celebration at Grand Bazaar Shops, a dazzling 3-minute-long light-and-sound show designed to mark the dawn of a new day.

LUSH TO OPEN SIXTH NEW STORE IN LAS VEGAS
Latest edition to Las Vegas’s LUSH offering, presents fresh, luxurious vegetarian products to cleanse the body, mind and soul

Grand Bazaar Shops 3

LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics, the British born ethical cosmetic deli, is preparing for the launch of its sixth store opening in Las Vegas at the Grand Bazaar Shops on 26th February 2015.

The 295 sq. ft. cosmetic heaven at Grand Bazaar Shops will bring LUSHs’ portfolio to a total of 217 stores across North America. 22 new jobs have been created, which include a variety of roles from retail managers, team leaders and sales associates.

Alyssa Gates, LUSH Cosmetics Director of US Real Estate: “We are thrilled to be opening our sixth new store in Las Vegas in February next year.”

“Our long term relationship with local consumers has allowed us to expand to two new locations in Nevada next year including Grand Bazaar Shops and The Forum Shops at Caesars (late January 2015). LUSH was already extremely well-received by consumers when we first launched in Las Vegas several years ago and as a result we felt it was time to further extend the number of stores in the area.”

“We are also very proud to have created 22 new jobs and be building knowledgeable and professional teams, who will continue to make shopping at the stores a unique and enjoyable experience.”

Using ecofriendly materials to create a sleek modern décor with an ‘at home’ kitchen feel, the store will welcome customers to come and browse the ethical skin care, hair care, bath and body luxuries, as well as creative gift ideas. Located at suite 21 at Grand Bazaar Shops, the store will be stocked with the brand’s famous bath bombs and fresh face masks. LUSH’s expert consultants will also be on hand to offer complimentary massages and product demonstrations for a truly indulgent experience.

The interactive nature of a LUSH store is incredibly unique to the beauty world. As a self-appointed cosmetic grocer, LUSH uses the freshest organic fruit, vegetables and essential oils to create the finest beauty cuisine. Whilst in store, customers are encouraged to choose their cosmetics personally from the fresh cleansing rolls at the skin care bar, piles of fragrant Bath Bombs, bars of solid shampoo, or from the fresh face masks displayed on ice. To help further assist customers, live product-making demonstrations are conducted in store as well as mini spa treatments to complementary skin and hair consultations.

With over 900 locations worldwide and more on the horizon for 2015, LUSH continues to create eco-friendly stores with a goal of having the least possible impact on the environment while producing innovative products. LUSH is committed to inspiring customers and prides itself on being a community focused retailer, actively supporting local charities, community groups and care organizations, via the Charity Pot program.

The New Year will also welcome stores at The Forum Shop Caesars in late January 2015 in addition to California, Hamilton and Ontario. To officially welcome the store to Las Vegas, a grand opening celebration will take place a few weeks after the stores official opening to meet all of the local and loyal fans – details to follow.
