When Montana had large profitable mining industries, celebrities, designers and big names from New York etc. came to Montana for the wealth it held. Around the Great Depression and when the money wasn’t as plentiful, designers began to substitute the original materials they might have used for high quality Swarovski crystal like stones. These stones had cuts we don’t see today and sparkle unlike any we would see in our regular department store. This was something that was all through out the country, not just Montana, but with its rich history of mining and wealth, it makes it a very interesting place. I will try to post pictures of my outfit each day, kinda like a fashion diary.
