BFC announces Rock Vault jewellers for 2016 - 2017
The British Fashion Council has announced the lineup of jewellers who will showcase their latest collections in an installation during London Fashion Week as part of the Rock Vault initiative.
Six designers, including new recipients Daou Jewellery and Frances Wadsworth-Jones, alongside existing Rock Vault designers Completedworks, Lily Kamper, Rachel Boston and Shimell and Madden, will present their work in an installation in the Designer Showrooms.
The initiative is curated by Stephen Webster and supported by the British Fashion Council. It aims to nurture the creative fine jewellery talent based in the UK.
The scheme has taken Rock Vault designers to the prestigious Couture Las Vegas show for the past four years, where this year Imogen Belfield and Tomasz Donocik received a Design award.
Caroline Rush CBE, Chief Executive, British Fashion Council commented: “The continued success of past and present Rock Vault designers both at home and abroad speaks to the achievement of this initiative. Under Stephen’s guidance the Rock Vault initiative really nurtures the undeniable talent of each season’s recipients.”
Stephen Webster MBE commented: “2015 saw the last of the founding designers of Rock Vault graduate. The five new designers gave press and buyers plenty to write about and to buy at this year’s Couture show in Las Vegas and the show concluded with two of last year’s graduate designers winning awards at the highly prestigious and competitive Couture awards.”
This year sees Ana de Costa, Beth Gilmour, Jacqueline Cullen, Ornella Iannuzzi, Ruifier and Yunus and Eliza all graduate from the initiative.
