Rachel Entwistle at Origin Fair, Italy May 06 2014

 

Rachel Entwistle is proud to announce her participation at "ORIGIN" which takes place from 8th - 11th May 2014 at Fiera di Vicenza, Italy.

"ORIGIN, PASSION & BELIEFS" (ORIGIN) is a groundbreaking new festival concept created by Fiera di Vicenza (FdV), the international organisation behind one of the most prominent fine jewellery show, VICENZAORO, and NOT JUST A LABEL (NJAL), the world’s leading designer platform for showcasing today’s pioneers in contemporary fashion. 

100 designers from 36 different countries picked from over 3,000 designers of the talent pool of NJAL, will be travelling to Fiera di Vicenza, situated in the North-eastern region of Italy. The Vicenza gold handicraft district is one of the many expressions of creativity originating from this small Italian town. The art of goldsmiths and fine jewellers is in the DNA of the entrepreneurs in the area, boasting over 700 years of tradition. 

During the Origin fair, some the most qualified masters of Italian craftsmanship will give an insight to the techniques and materials used when a product is labelled with the "Made in Italy" stamp. At the same time 150 international buyers and press will be there to engage and collaborate with the designers. Alongside the workshops, attendees will also engage with the Venice Art Biennale 2013 as well as the IUAV Graduate Show in Treviso. By bringing together traditional and regional manufacturing houses with exciting design talents, innovative and pioneering opportunities for both worlds will arise. The collaboration will not only provide buyers with an opportunity to access these designs, but the actual coming together of visionary design with traditional production houses, will plant seeds for the future. ORIGIN is greatly supported by Italy’s leading luxury fashion and jewellery industry corporations, as well as the country’s most renowned fashion design college, the IUAV of Venice.

Rachel Entwistle has been selected among 3,000 designers from the NJAL talent pool, to travel to Italy and present her new AW14 jewellery collection "Modern Primitive" at ORIGIN. Inspired by ancient tools, arrowheads and our own human origins, the collection is entirely handmade in London using metals such as sterling Silver, Gold and Black Rhodium as well as precious stones, creating a fine line embellished with Rubies.
