To celebrate our 20 year anniversary we have embarked on a very exciting design project with Central Saint Martins and Christie’s.

We have chosen six recent graduates who have been tasked with designing a small capsule collection, three to design ladies and the remaining to design for men.

I am thrilled that they will be mentored by the expertise of jewellery designer, Hannah Martin to create remarkable pieces whilst maintaining the true to the Tateossian signature style.

We announced last week that the judges will be David Furnish, Vogue jewellery editor Carol Woolton, GQ editor Dylan Jones, The Sunday Times columnist AA Gill, chairman of Christie’s European Advisory Board Pedro Girao, Tateossian’s CEO creative director Ariel Thompson and I. Students will have the chance to hear varied feedback from industry greats and be exposed to key people in the industry. Opportunities like this don’t come around often so I am pushing the students to make the best of this kind of opportunity!

I have only seen initial concepts but each student so far has come up with some very interesting ideas. They seem to understand the need to have something that is commercially successful while still giving us the wow factor! Favourites….. well you will have to wait and see!
