You heard it here first - We’re going to be holding two exclusive IJL 2013 mini events in Leeds and Edinburgh! The first invite-only preview will be held on 13th May at the Malmaison Hotel in Leeds and the second will take place on 24th June at the Hotel Missoni in Edinburgh.
Featuring a preview of what to expect from the newly unveiled 2013 KickStart line up, alongside select show-favourites, these special previews will provide local jewellers with valuable insight, and act as a ‘soft launch’ into the world of exhibiting for the designers.
The KickStarters being previewed are: Rosie Sanders, Pheobe Jewellery, Anna Byers, KATTRI, Sara Gunn, Jenny Llewellyn (Edinburgh only) and Christiana Christoforou. Alongside the KickStart designers, Fei Liu and Babette Wasserman are already lined up for both preview events, and Deakin & Francis and CW Sellors will appear at the Edinburgh event. The designers from Scotland’s unique jewellery studio, Vanilla Ink, will also join them. The bright talent supported by this incubator ‘pod’ style concept took the industry by storm earlier this year with their IJL crowd-funding initiative, to raise money to appear at the show.
The fashionable boutique Hotel Malmaison, in Leeds, and the Hotel Missoni, in Edinburgh, will provide a super stylish environment to complement the designers and their collections.
KATTRI - KickStarter
Champagne and canapés will be served, and the events will provide an excellent local networking opportunity, whilst building excitement for the main show in London!
See you there x
