The British Fashion Council (BFC) has announced that Rock Vault will mreturn to showcase at trade show Couture Las Vegas from May 29th – June 2nd 2014. British jewellers Fernando Jorge, Imogen Belfield, Jo Hayes Ward, Melanie Georgacopoulos, Tomasz Donocik and Yunus & Eliza will present their AW14 collections within the Stephen Webster ball room to top US and international press and buyers during the five day showcase.
Rock Vault designers making their Couture debut are Jacqueline Cullen, who specializes in contemporary Whitby jet jewellery; Ornella Iannuzzi, whose work is "characterised by harmonious composition of colours and textures" and Alice Cicolini who creates pieces inspired by sacred architecture and the patterns of the Silk Route.
Following the successful first showing at Couture last year, which saw Tomasz Donocik walk away with two awards, for “Best New Designer” and “Diamonds over $20,000”, it's hoped that Couture 2014 will see further recognition of British jewellery design talent in the US market and beyond.
