How to catch the fashion sphere attention during the Fashion Week?

Make a strong impression with a stunning first collection, as Alighieri.

Launched in 2014 by Rosh Mahtani, Alighieri is a collection of jewelry inspired by Dante Alighieri’s ‘Divine Comedy’, the epic poem she felt in love with during her studies at Oxford University. Far away from the minimalism trend, the London-based designer- who has also collaborated for Joseph F/W18 catwalk- offers us a journey through Dante’s Odyssey. Each gold-plated piece, which corresponds to one of the poet’s 101 poems, is battered, imperfect, and infused with a little bit of melancholy. Rosh Mahtani embodies the changing times in embracing the imperfections of handmade gold jewelry.

Second option: shake up the jewelry world with a super cool collaboration.

Revealed during the PFW to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the brand’s iconic Move collection, Valerie Messika has teamed up with supermodel Gigi Hadid on an ultra-chic contemporary iteration of its iconic Move collection. Earrings, rings, bracelets and necklaces, all the range embodies Messika’s mantra of making diamond wearable every day and suitable for all ages. A highly covetable line, as their international new muse.

At last, if you aim to stand out, there is no better way to intrigue the Fashion heads with a real signature. Gaelle Khouri’s first collection strikes with its avant-garde and intricate designs. The Lebanese designer’s conceptual jewels are drawn by her dreams and emotions.

If her first line was focused on insect-inspired creations, her second line is revealing an elaborate range of sleek gold lines, mostly set with diamonds, which delicately wrap your hand, arm or neck in subtle movement. Halfway between a jewelry and a sculpture, Khouri’s collection expresses an effortlessly beauty all in movements.
