Known for its myriad great design talent, the Couture show never disappoints
Designers and jewelry at the Couture show were—no surprise—unforgettable again this year, with dozens of standout signature styles competing for the attention of showgoers. Here are just a handful of designers whose works I covet (there are many more!), and you should as well.
Jacqueline Cullen. The Whitby jet–loving artist in Stephen Webster’s Rock Vault makes Art Deco–kissed styles with a fierce presence. I look forward to following up with her and learning more.

NC Rocks. The silhouettes and colors from this firm are fantastically whimsical and bright. I could easily see making its multicolor aesthetic—akin to geometric embroidery with stones and enamel—my own.

Nikos Koulis. He’s been on our radar for a few years, and I’m obsessed with his work—a mix of Art Deco influence and modern-day styling. This is a designer whose works will be loved by many.

Federica Rettore. The artist’s pieces are lovely and fairylike—as if a woodland nymph got busy at a bench. Her color choices are soft and dreamy, and the silhouettes are often bold.

Arunashi. His one-of-a-kind works will burn a long-lasting picture in your memory (they are that impressive). For clients who are hard to impress, introduce them to this designer’s work; they’ll see nothing else like it on the market.
