NEW DELHI — Markus Langes-Swarovski’s return to India after 14 years is symbolic — 14 years is considered a number in Indian epics when heros return, are worshipped, adulated and epitomized.
Langes-Swarovski, an heir to the Swarovski empire and spokesman for the board, found a small level of such adulation and celebration here recently as the Austrian Embassy set out a grand garden fair for him, despite a winter evening. Twelve of India’s foremost fashion designers displayed their unique visions of Swarovski crystal.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
