Last week we took some well-deserved time out to check out London Fashion Week.
You may be asking what fashion week has to do with jewellery but as a jewellery designer its very important to keep up with the latest fashion trends.
When you look in your jewellery box you can see how jewellery trends change, just like the trends in fashion. You can tell the difference between a 1930’s floral inspired ring to the geometrical shapes and high setting of the 70s and then compare that with jewellery design we see today.
We had the pleasure of a designer catwalks and the trends catwalk for Spring Summer ’18. So, who did we see on the runway!? Zandra Rhodes, a fashion icon! At 77 she’s been in the fashion industry for 50 years as of 2019! The fashions we saw had beautiful patterns and colours, ruffles and pleats.
Summer fashion is going to be gorgeous!
As a designer, it is also important to get out and talk to other designers and meet people in similar industries for potential collaborations and just to generally get to know people! I love getting to know people from my own industry and others because I believe we all have something to offer and something to learn.
Not only did I soak up LFW, but I also gained so much inspiration from the bright lights of the city. As Roseanna Croft Jewellery is based in the Peak District of England, it’s nice to get out every once in a while and see what’s happening in the rest of the world.
I have arrived back in Derbyshire with so much inspiration for new designs from things I have seen this week, I can’t wait to share it with you all so watch this space!
