Design, Innovation, and Research, our real grounds for creativity, always remain at the center of what we do. In jewelry, as in fashion, the research of design, innovative materials, and sustainability broadens and enriches the product range, providing a greater amount of touchpoints, by means of which the contemporary consumer can connect.
How have the scenarios of contemporary jewelry changed after the pandemic? In which directions the fashion jewelry industry is moving? With a pioneering spirit, Homi Fashion&Jewels Exhibition explores the new territories, values, and strategies of fashion jewelry in the international webinar “Jewelry Today: Something New”.
The panel gathered to discuss the topic includes three protagonists of the most relevant jewelry international communities: each guest will reveal “something new” as a hint for any designer, maker and company.
The digital talk, organised by Homi Fashion&Jewels in collaboration with Poli.design, aims to present the trends for jewellery for the next two years, in terms of aesthetic, shapes, materials and innovation.
HOMI Fashion&Jewels Exhibition is the event in Milan dedicated to Fashion Accessories, Bijoux and Trendy Jewellery. By attending our event, which has two appointments per year, in February and September, you will discover unique proposals, surprising combinations and innovative collections. Design, style, sustainability and innovative materials: these are the pillars of the NEW CRAFT project, the most important special area in Homi Fashion & Jewels Exhibition. In the NEW CRAFT area you will discover the national and international designers’ proposals and their creativity in jewelry and fashion accessories.
Being creative today is more challenging than ever!
