BELSAY, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Apr 19, 2009 / — It seems there’s no end to Stella McCartney’s creativity. An animal lover, Stella has often used the silhouette of a horse in her textiles and fashion design.
Now she’s reprised Lucky Spot, a gorgeous crystal “chandelier” installation at Belsay Castle in the UK. Lucky Spot was originally created by the fashion designer back in 2004 for a special exhibit at the castle, and has returned (her/him) there in a special engagement for the Easter Holidays.
Stella McCartney was inspired to create Lucky Spot as a response to the beauty of Belsay Castle with it’s medieval architecture and mystical quarry garden. According to Belsay Castle officials, “she wanted to create something magical, romantic and visually stunning. She designed a jewelled curtain of thousands of Swarovski crystals that hung in the shape of a horse from the ceiling in the Castle’s Great Hall.” As you can see it’s remarkable.
