Trends & The New Digital Normal in a Post-COVID World

Trends & The New Digital Normal in a Post-COVID World

Our March Open House: An energising and inspiring panel discussion on design and consumer trends in 2021 and beyond.

Thursday 11 March 15:00-16:30 (GMT) online

2020 was a year like no other and has understandably left many of us feeling uncertain about what lies ahead for the jewellery industry. With this month’s Open House we hope to shed some light on what we might expect from an inexorably changed marketplace and analyse how to effectively communicate your brand’s message in a virtual world.

In what promises to be an informative session with lots of practical advice, we call on industry experts to share their visions of the ‘new normal’ and the changes that will come to define a post-pandemic world.

Fair Luxury is delighted to invite you to this dynamic session of both expert opinion and Q&A.

The event is free to attend but please register in advance to join us.

Fair Luxury Presents

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text=”Fair Luxury Presents – September 2017″ font_container=”tag:h3|text_align:left” css=”.vc_custom_1518551156795{margin-bottom: 30px !important;}”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row gap=”10″][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”78″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” css=”.vc_custom_1519136490138{margin-bottom: 30px !important;}”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]Our first exhibition, Fair Luxury Presents at the Goldsmiths’ Centre, London, was a selling exhibition of jewellery celebrating responsible provenance as the third dimension of luxury, alongside design and craftsmanship. Marrying beauty and environmental awareness, we told the story of a piece of jewellery from the earth to the wearer – the materials, people and processes involved from source to beautifully crafted object.

Championing makers for whom traceability and sustainability are as important as craftsmanship and design, this exhibition was the first of its kind, a tangible expression of Fair Luxury.

Alongside the jewellery, photographs by renowned Magnum photographer Ian Berry captured the intricacies of worlds at different ends of the supply chain. He has recorded ordinary lives in extraordinary circumstances from 1960 onwards and here his prestigious lens turns to Fairtrade gold. Ian’s creativity and aesthetic draws a sharp contrast, creating beautiful images of the harsh reality of the artisanal mining sector and finishing with photographs of UK jewellers at the bench – to raise the profile of the need for sustainable and responsibly sourced gold.

Thanks to the Goldsmiths’ Centre, Janice Hosegood, Joanna Hardy and the Fair Luxury Team we are proud we made this happen[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
