He has an empire of crystals to inherit but it does not seem that this is the path he intends to follow in his professional life. The daughter of Paul and Alexandra Swarovski, who are now separated, Victoria was born in Austria in 1993. Singer and songwriter since the age of 12, at 15 he signed his first contract with Sony. He started recording dancemusic But at 18 he said that was not the style he liked and took a break to discover “what he wanted to do.” Now, she has settled on a style she calls “pop with a touch of soul and R&B.”

He was the voice of the theme song of the theme song soundtrack of Chronicles of Narnia, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader and performed at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. However, it is his private life that is the focus of the media spotlight. In 2017 she married Werner Mürz, a German real estate investor, 20 years her senior.

“Our parents were very good friends, that’s why we met,” she said at the time. The couple’s wedding delighted the tabloids thanks to their extravagant wedding, where Swarovski wore a million-dollar dress that “went viral.”

Decorated, with more than half a million Swarovski crystals Hand embroidered, the dress weighed about 46 kg. “It was a great dress, I was very happy,” she said. “My father said ‘the dress is not important,’ but for me it was.” The wedding took place in Portopiccolo, Italy, and lasted three days. “We had been together for six years and engaged for three when we got married.” After the wedding, Swarovski went to live in Germany where he began to carve out a niche for himself in the entertainment industry. He then received an offer to work on the German version of the television show dancing with the stars.

“At first, I didn’t want to do it, because people judge you by your name before you even start. But in the end I did it and I won, and it was incredible,” he said then. “It was my takeoff point, people didn’t know me until then and I worked very hard to get there.” After his success on the show, he was offered a place on Germany’s Got Talent jury. She had conquered German television at once: “I have excellent opportunities in entertainment. It’s fun, I love it“.

In addition to entertainment and music, the Austrian is also a fashion designer. After conquering Germany, Victoria says that she continues to search for her own path and hopes to gain a foothold in the British market in one of the aspects that he dominates – music, fashion or entertainment – ​​and then launched in the United States. “If you are in England and London, the step to the United States is not so far away.”

For now, and while he discovers what he wants to do, he has decided not to get involved in the family business. The example of his father, who left the company after working there for 25 years, served as an example. “Yes, he could have done something in the family business, but my father has left it 25 years later and andor I don’t want to waste those 25 years to start my own business“Although she has several open fronts, she says that music is her passion and what motivates her the most but without closing doors: “There are so many things that I love to do, that it is difficult for me to decide.”
