High fashion jewellery lovers (and there’s more than a few of those in the Grazia office) will be excited to hear today’s announcement from the British Fashion Council – the Rock Vault designers have been decided!
The names of the designer brands are as follows; Alice Cicolini, who is new for AW13, and who has previously worked for Annoushka, as well as Fernando Jorge, cult jewellery hero Hannah Martin, British Fashion Award winning Husam El Odeh, Imogen Belfield, Jo Hayes Ward, Melanie Georgacopoulos, Sophie Bille Brahe, Tomasz Donocik and Yunus & Eliza - who will all be featured.
Rock Vault is a dedicated area of London Fashion Week’s exhibition where the hottest British jewellery designers have a platform and the eyes of the influential press and buyers while they are in town for ready to wear shows.
Grazia’s very own Fashion Editor and jewellery connoisseur, Catherine Nieto, is on the panel which selected the finalists. She had this to say; 'the thing that makes the Rock Vault such an exciting project is not only that we get to check out all the brilliant jewellery and talented young designers, but when you put all those different jewellers in one space it has such a big impact - and all during the most important week of the fashion calendar - London Fashion Week. It's an amazing platform for a jeweller trying to make their name'.
Congratulations one and all – we can’t wait to see your sparkling creations in all their glory next month.
