Kylie Sparkles Onstage in 120,000 Crystals

Kylie Minogue’s Golden Tour will be made truly golden, thanks to a fabulous dress adorned with thousands of Preciosa’s Crystal Aurum crystals.

The pop icon will be taking the stage in not one, but two incredible dresses covered in Preciosa crystals for the tour. The main piece – a shimmering golden slip dress – is lavishly adorned with a mind-boggling 120,000 Crystal Aurum hotfix crystals from Preciosa, each one hand-applied individually.

The dresses are designed by London-based couture label Kolchagov Barba, who wanted to create pieces that were ‘unique and sexy, yet elegant and sophisticated’.

“We wanted the tour and Kylie herself to be the inspiration behind the dress; something striking, iconic, vibrant, golden, and yet elegant – just as we know Kylie to be”, says the fashion label. “It had to be a dress that demanded attention and reflected light and all of Kylie’s dazzling energy back to her adoring fans.”

Just this one piece took over a month to create, utilizing a team of 10 couturiers working around the clock. The desired effect was to have Kylie utterly covered in pure crystal; we can safely say they achieved this aim.

The second piece is a green jumpsuit embellished with 80,000 Preciosa crystals; colors used to achieve the final effect include Emerald, Erinite, Aquamarine, Light Topaz and Blue Zircon.

Kylie’s twenty-seven date tour kicked off on 18th September and will conclude on 24th November.

Kolchagov Barba was founded in August 2013 through the collaboration of the Bulgarian born designer, Svetoslav Kolchagov and the Italian entrepreneur, Emilio Barba. Svetoslav Kolchagov has created for many of the most influential design houses, including Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen to name a few.
