Fashion Jewellery: Catwalk and Couture by Maia Adams
Fashion jewellery is created with the catwalk and couture in mind, characterized by its creativity and originality.
It is arguably the most exciting field in fashion today. Arranged by designer, this is the first book to showcase
contemporary catwalk and couture jewellery, profiling 33 international fashion jewellers who combine traditional
techniques and ultra-modern methods to create this new style of jewellery. Among the stunning images of work
shown are collaborations with leading fashion designers and brands such as Lanvin, Vivienne Westwood,
Alexander McQueen and Comme des Garçons, as well as collections for directional fashion stores such as
Colette and 10 Corso Como.
Fashion Jewellery will provide inspiration for designers, jewellers and students of fashion,
offering a unique insight into the working methods and inspirations of a new generation of jewellers.
Showcasing skilled craftsmanship, unusual materials and an often limited-edition approach
Fashion Jewellery harnesses the spirit of couture for the 21st century.
