The Trends Jewellery Forecasting and strategic luxury consulting group, based in Arezzo, Italy, and founded in 2002, is folding its print magazine and restructuring into two separate companies in order to better meet its luxury clients’ needs.
Effective Dec. 1, TJF Magazine will no longer be published, and the TJF Trend book content will continue to be sponsored by the Vicenza Fair. Additionally, creative director and co-founder Paola De Luca is launching the Trend Vision, Jewellery, and Forecasting Division in order to “expand our research and forecasting services, promoting our speaking engagements around the world on behalf of the Vicenza Fair,” according to a media release. Her consulting company, the Paola De Luca Group, will continue to develop creative services projects for an exclusive portfolio of clients.
Meawhile, CEO Paolo Novembri will continue to offer advice in strategic international business development through his own AMBIO Jewellery and Fashion Strategic Services, a company that predates the TJF Group. He will continue to consult for clients who plan to enter new markets and need market entry distribution strategies and insight into how to develop or reposition suitable products for the tastes of those markets.
Nancy Robey, founder of the Nancy Robey Partnership Inc., headquartered in New York City, has been the U.S. director for the TJF Group and will continue as agent and U.S. director for both new entities.
