Full Circle with Vicky Lew, Vicky Lew London

Comments

If you’re a first time reader to this series, the month of August and September are dedicated to those who won big at JCK (it is Olympic season after-all) and today’s feature is going to a designer to watch. The jewelry community got a taste of Vicky Lew London at her first-ever JCK Las Vegas and safe to say, she left everyone wanting more.  An exhibitor in the Design Center, Vicky and her less than 1 year old company dove head first into the brand’s American debut.

JCK Las Vegas starts in a matter of days!  I have two more jewelry designers making waves with distinctive design on my list to visit in the Design Center.  Meet Kalee Sholdt and Rona Fisher, resident designers who create a culture within their companies as well as the industry.  It sounds like they are looking forward to seeing jewelry friends as much as I am!

In addition to emerging jewelry designers fresh from graduate school or embarking on second careers, there are some returning designers who have achieved a certain iconic status within the design world.

When reflecting on the “pinch me” moments of JCK Las Vegas last year, Emmy Award– winning costume designer Patricia Field comes to mind. Attendees and exhibitors left with a multitude of takeaways from her presence. Whether it was something said in her intimate chat, things revealed from her work on Sex and the City and The Devil Wears Prada, or seeing her style models adorned with Design Center exhibitors—merging these two worlds just felt right. There’s much more where that came from this year, and it’s happening every day! A new batch of A-List Hollywood costume designers will take the stage…
