Our 2020 season is all about supporting artists. Artists and artist athletes such as dancers, figure skaters, gymnasts, drag queens, figure posing competitors, western show competitors and cheerleaders are the obvious artists to support. At Rhinestones Unlimited we seek to support the support team of artists behind the artist. What do we mean? We look for the choreographers, dance teachers, coaches, costumers, dressmakers, and tailors that provide the sparkle and artful eye and talent that really allows the artist to sparkle in the spotlight.
To kick off this season we are thrilled with the return of the Sparkle in the Spotlight Design Contest. This year we have a dance studio owner, dance mom turned designer, dance grandma coming out of retirement to design for her dancing granddaughter, figure skating dress designer, ballroom dress designer, and burlesque designer. As part of our celebration and support of artistry, we present to you the finalists in the Swarovski® Sparkle In the Spotlight 2019 costume competition!
Each day this week we will be revealing a designer with video and images. Third up is: FREIDA B.
FreidaB is located in Framingham, Massachusetts. FreidaB's goal is to serve the recreational, competitive, or team skater by designing and manufacturing the highest quality skating apparel using the finest fabrics. All of their garments have a superior fit to insure each skater looks and feels great.
Freida created a bright latin dance inspired showpiece with our DIY appliques, Swarovski rhinestones and large Swarovski jewel cut flatbacks in extra sparkly crystal clear. With the vibrant mix of colorful sparkle and a gorgeous latin dancer, we know you will appreciate the beauty FreidaB created!
