The fair returns with a few new features for 2014
As in previous years, the fair is split across two weeks (22 to 28 September and 30 September to 5 October), and presents a total of 170 jewellers and goldsmiths. Fresh from a rather controversial win at the Designs of the Year 2014, architect Zaha Hadid is guest curating a showcase of 21 personal highlights across both weeks.
With names like Ute Decker, Jo Hayes Ward, Kathryn Hinton and Juliette Bigley appearing in her selection, it reflects her interest in digital technologies and contemporary aesthetics. Another first, this year’s fair has a programme of ‘in-conversation’ events so visitors can hear from some of the best jewellers around including Zoe Arnold, Andrew Lamb and Vicki Ambery-Smith.
