This year's Trend Focus events at International Jewellery London 2017 will give visitors an in-depth and comprehensive review of Spring/Summer 2018 jewellery trends, with daily catwalk shows revealing the key looks (in the pictures below) and collections selected by IJL’s new trend editor, yours truly, together with a dedicated Trends seminar on the first day of the show.
Thanks to Sam for the kind words...
Sam Willoughby, IJL Event Director, comments: “More than 500 exhibitors will be presenting their take on the main cutting-edge trends for 2018 at this year’s event. The challenge for retailers and buyers is how best to translate these trends to best use within the retail environment. Rachael Taylor, with all her industry experience, promises to give an invaluable and insightful view both on the Catwalk and at her seminar. Both should be on everyone’s 'must attend' list!”
CHASE THE RAINBOW
Innovation in jewellery craft often brings surreal colour statements. Bespoke alloys or rhodium plating can transform gold into shades of fuscia, green, purple or black, while heat transforms titanium into peacock hues to stand out from, or blend in with, gemstones.
Coloured enamel and ceramics add accents or form the basis of designs, while bright leathers, feathers and silks create tactile flashes of colour.

See you there next week!
