Traditionally Easter maybe thought of as the less sparkly and magical festivity compared to Christmas. But not for jewellery firm Fabergé who wanted to stop London shoppers in their tracks.
Asked by iconic store Harrods to dress their window for Easter, Faberge created a virtual egg, mapping projections of dazzling colours and jewels on to a plain egg, shrouded by darkness in the backing display.
