Full Circle with Deeta Thakural

Comments

I had the pleasure of meeting Deeta Thakural at JCK Las Vegas, she was kind, humble and had a strong passion for her craft.

As we dive into August, sporting (and selling) the trends that the season brought us, let’s take a moment to celebrate our favorites from all our JCK brands (Tucson, Las Vegas, LUXURY, Elite Enclave, Privé you name it, they had it).
