MODE DIPLMATIQUE Speaks on Inaugural CFDA Jewelry Showcase


Golden Rituals ..

When my friend and CFDA member Simon Alcantara generated an idea to bolster exposure for the CFDA’s growing contingent of jewelry designers, the CFDA was thrilled to turn that idea into reality.

With guidance and support from Simon Alcantara and Talya Cousins, 19 CFDA Members and jewelry designers gathered in a collective showcase a platform for them to grow their respective businesses in both the retail and editorial arenas :

Angela Cummings, Danielle and Jodie Snyder for Dannijo, Dean Harris, Gerard Yosca, Kara Ross, Steven Lagos, Lisa Jenks, Loree Rodkin, Lisa Salzer for Lulu Frost, Michael Spirito, Mimi So, Mish Tworkowski for Mish, Nak Armstrong, Nicholas Varney for Nicholas Varney Jewels, Simon Alcantara, Stephen Dweck, Rachel Dooley for Gemma Redux, Ron Anderson and David Rees for TenThousandThings and Cheryl Finnegan for Virgins Saints and Angels [please click & embrace the opulence of each designers]

“The most impactful programs at CFDA start with our members. We are thrilled that Simon, with Talya’s support, is working with us,” said Steven Kolb (CFDA CEO + Fashion Facilitator - Read our interview).

“This platform for jewelry designers gives credence to the important influence jewelry has on fashion and respects the creativity of our designers.”
