News: Jewellery Show and the Goldsmiths' Centre announce new partnership
Jewellery Show, the brand-new dedicated Jewellery trade event brought to you by Closer Still Media announces an exciting new partnership with the Goldsmiths’ Centre, the UK’s leading charity for the professional training of goldsmiths.
The jewellery industry will come together at Excel, London on the 5th & 6th September for the largest UK trade event of the year to be inspired, learn and trade.
This unique partnership will provide a platform for the new talent showcase in jewellery and silversmithing, ‘Shine’ curated by the Goldsmiths’ Centre, which helps to shape the careers of up and coming talented emerging makers through a programme of skills training and showcasing opportunities. To further add to their journey, selected pieces will be chosen and then presented on the Goldsmiths’ Centre’s dedicated Runway scene at this year’s Jewellery Show.
Speaking of the partnership Charlotte Dew, Public Programme Manager at the Goldsmiths’ Centre said:
“We are very pleased to be collaborating with the Jewellery Show to create this platform for emerging designers’ work to be seen by a wide range of retailers, suppliers and ambassadors from the industry. The chance for makers at this stage in their career to see their jewellery modelled is rare and adds a whole new dimension to their learning and development.”
Alison Balshaw, Sales Director of Jewellery Show said:
“We are so excited to be partnering with the Goldsmiths’ Centre, providing a dedicated scene on the Jewellery Shows runway is a real privilege. This will certainly be one to watch and a great way for the whole industry to see such prestigious talent showcased live in front of them – a partnership to keep your eyes on and a must see for your diaries in September.”
This collaboration brings together the Jewellery Show's expertise in the jewellery industry, with the Goldsmiths’ Centre’s knowledge and reputation in skills training. It will bring invaluable resources and connections for the jewellery industry overall.
The runway will be a vibrant and must-see part of the jewellery show. It will provide the audience with key seasonal trends, close ups and real take aways for retailers to utilise right away within their stores.
