New Designer Gallery
The New Designer Gallery at JA New York
Since its inception in 1977, JA New York’s New Designer Gallery has been the launching pad for some of today’s most prominent jewelry designers, including David Yurman, Alex Sepkus, Penny Preville, and K. Brunini to name a few. The New Designer Gallery is instrumental in assisting designers in developing their careers while gaining recognition for their talent. An annual tradition at the Summer Show, retailers expect to see the cutting edge collections from the most promising up-and-coming designers.
Continuing a long-established tradition of supporting emerging talent, JA New York is pleased to announce the New Designer Gallery at the JA New York 2016 Summer Show will present 10 designers who will be making their debut. The designers featured in this year’s New Designer Gallery will be selected among a number of applicants based on their distinct point of view and design acumen, and their booths will partially be under-written by JA New York. The New Designer Gallery will be the focal point of the Design District on the show floor.
