Victoria’s Secret opts for lab-grown diamonds for highly anticipated 2018 ‘Fantasy Bra’

Atelier Swarovski and Victoria’s Secret partnered for the first time to create the highly anticipated 2018 Dream Angels Fantasy Bra.

For this year’s Fantasy Bra, which is the centrepiece of the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, the lingerie firm decided to work with sustainable materials, including man-made stones, to shine a light on conscious luxury.

The 2018 Fantasy Bra features over 2,100 Swarovski Created Diamonds, while responsibly sourced topaz are included in the body chain, which has been adorned with a striking Swarovski Created Diamond centre stone.

The one-of-a-kind piece has been crafted in sterling silver and took four craftsmen more than 930 hours to complete.

The bra is said to be valued at $1 million, although experts question this given the fact the piece is encrusted with lab-grown stones, which should be more affordable than natural diamonds.

Model Elsa Hosk will debut the Dream Angel Fantasy Bra on the catwalk during a broadcast of The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Holiday Special’ in December.

The model will accessorise the bra with a necklace, rings, and bangles from the Atelier Swarovski by Christopher Kane collection.

In anticipation of the show, fans will be able to shop a version of the bra featuring crystals from Swarovski in select stores and online.
