SPINNING WHEELS: Swarovski has tasked nominees in the CFDA Awards’ Swarovski emerging talent categories with creating individual crystal pennants.

Designers including Ryan Roche and Brandon Maxwell collectively used more than 270,000 of the Austrian firm’s crystals on their pennants. The designs will be pieced together to form a giant pinwheel, which will be on display at a forthcoming carnival-themed event.

Wednesday evening’s downtown cocktail party will feature varying games and appearances by the nine labels up for Swarovski awards: Brandon Maxwell, Ryan Roche and Monse’s Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia for women’s wear; John Elliott, Gypsy Sport’s Rio Uribe and Orley’s Alex Orley, Matthew Orley and Samantha Orley for men’s wear, and Gigi Burris, Paul Andrew and Brother Vellies’ Aurora James for accessories.
