Q&A WITH JEWELLERY DESIGNER VINITA MICHAEL AHEAD ON HER FFWD SHOWCASE
1. What can we expect from your upcoming showcase at Season 9 FFWD?
We will be presenting our latest collection ‘Flora Fantastica’. As the name suggests, the chief inspiration for the collection are floral forms and motifs. The designs are contemporary with a sculptural look and feel. They are crafted in 925 Sterling Silver and set with crystals from Swarovski.
2. What did you do differently, this season, in technique and design?
We have particularly tried to be innovative with the design language of the collection, encouraging new ways of wearing jewelry - be it the two finger ring, four finger ring , palm cuff or the no piercing earrings.
3. Who is your muse for the season?
Emma Stone ! I’m majorly smitten with her character in La la Land at the moment
4. What piece from your collection is most precious to you?
I am particularly fond of the ‘In the garden’ no piercing earrings, as it is a totally new product category that we have developed this season. The earrings are striking and elegant and the detachable danglers make them so versatile ! I also love the ‘Adorned’ two finger ring, and the ‘Lavish’ four finger ring is the ultimate hand accessory.
STEAL HER STYLE
Stealing the show at the Academy Awards 2017, was a new face on the block, actress Priyanka Bose from Oscar nominated movie, Lion. She was one of the few to debut the first collection of Atelier Swarovski fine jewellery!
