DOB 10/04/86 Age 28
Originally from the UK, Short moved to Switzerland, where she studied fine jewellery design and making in the town of La Chaux-de-Fonds, the watch-making capital of Switzerland.
Short then went on to work for a renowned watch and jewellery designer in Switzerland, where she was quickly promoted to design project manager, responsible for designing watch and jewellery collections for brands such as Esprit, Tous and Cerruti 1881.
Founded in 2010 by Short and her business partner Jerome Robert, AMS Design Studio is a design and development studio based in London with an emphasis on watches, jewellery, homeware and accessories.
Last year, the pair took their first foray into the branded market with the launch of The Camden Watch Company, a brand of fine yet affordable timepieces designed in and inspired by London’s Camden Town.
