First, Powell, a longtime Swarovski collaborator, worked with the technicians at the Swarovski’s headquarters in Austria to design the crystal slippers. A team of eight worked on the development and creation of the shoes, taking approximately 150 hours and working on six versions before the final model was decided on.
