Etisomba contacted Madison Greene, the fundraiser’s founder who suffered from undetected hearing loss as a child, and told her she would be of any assistance.

The transformation - led by the fifth-generation Nadja Swarovski - heralds an extension of the 120-year-old family-owned company's successful reinvention within the fashion industry during the late 1990s, placing…Continuar
