Hey, this is a shout out to all my jewelry designer friends, particularly if you’re a new talent who recently launched your business. The JA New York Show has announced that applications are now being accepted for the coveted New Designer Gallery at the upcoming Summer Show, which will take place July 27th through the 29th, 2014 at the Jacob Javits Center.
The New Designer Gallery is a great way for designers to introduce their designs and initiate themselves into the fine jewelry industry. The Gallery has launched hundreds of designers over the past 37 years, starting with David Yurman and including well-known talents like Alex Sepkus, Steven Kretchmer, Penny Preville, Paul Morelli, Steven Lagos, Stephen Dweck, Mark Schneider, K. Brunini, and Joseph Murray to name just a few. New York City is the heart of the jewelry industry, and this show puts you directly in front of some of the most influential decision-makers.
Here’s how it works:
The New Designer Gallery is eligible to all designers who have not yet exhibited at a fine jewelry trade show. There will be ten chosen applicants selected from a wide pool of designers, who will receive a turnkey space in the custom-designed gallery, which has recently undergone a dramatic redesign. During the show, one designer will be voted “New Designer of the Year” by an anonymous panel of editors, retailers and industry experts. The ten designers will be promoted to the media via the shows’ public relations team and will be featured in all show promotional vehicles, on the show’s website and on NationalJeweler.com.
The world needs to see your designs! Interested?
The deadline for applications is May 1, 2014.
