  • Bling-tastic Madador Costume - Michelangelo

    November 12, 2012 by Britex Fabrics

    Here is another marvelous collaboration between Britex Fabrics and one of our customers; Leslie from the 3rd floor helped the dapper and distinguished Michelangelo freshen up his matador costume with several hundred of our Swarovski Elements crystals to make it blindingly sparkly. Michelangelo says, “As promised, here are some photos of the finished Matador Costume. I could not have done it without your assistance! Thank YOU for being such an important part of making this costume come to life! It is truly a 'Suit of Lights'!” We think the glorious bling lends it a very special San Francisco traje de luces touch!
