Swarovski is the jewellery and crystal partner for The Bodyguard. The costumes for the show feature over 100,000Swarovski Elements and were worked on by a team of experts led by award-winning set and costume designer Tim Hatley. Describing the process of making a show come to life through his work, Tim Hatley said 'As a Theatre Designer, it's always a challenge to design a stage show that is based on a well-known book or film. Theatre has a visual language that is very different to film, and it's my job to create and develop visual ideas, make them specific and take advantage of a live theatrical environment.' He added: 'As a designer for both stage and screen, I have come to depend on the brilliance of Swarovski. There is simply no other crystal range giving choice of size, colour and sheer sparkle. The moment a stage light hits a Swarovski Element, there is magic. For The Bodyguard the Musical I have embellished leading lady Heather Headley's costumes with thousands of crystals.'
