Jewellery Week 2012 – London Gets Glittered
What a week, what a lot of networking, bumping into old industry faces, meeting new industry blood, talking (jewellery) shop and a dishing out many a card. Let’s not mention the state of the liver….
Last week London was a truly golden city bedecked in glitter ‘n’ baubles for Jewellery Week 2012. Taking place at Somerset House with the launch at the Mayfair Hotel the night before, I was a true fixture at the fabulous, palacial setting in London’s WC2, walking the aisles bumping into so many old faces.
The party at the actual launch was bursting at the seams and the atmosphere was indeed sparkling, with not too many a sober face…The day-times consisted of ogling the creations and chatting to so many of the young creatives in the industry who I have now been bumping into since the first London Jewellery Week 5 years ago, each evolving with credible collections, Joanna Dahdah, Jessica de Lotz to name a few.
Streams of potential new clients and press kept appearing at Lestie’s stand, really appreciating the craftsmanship and delicate, ultra feminine, truly wearable designs in her hand-made collections.
I seriously think the wearability-factor of Lestie’s gems are what shone, from the competition.
