Labante Jewellery

I've seen for the first time Labante  Jewellery during a fashion show at the Montcalm Hotel. Fashion designer Lewis-Duncan Weedon was showing his collection and the beautiful jewellery  worn by the models on the runway were by this company that sources the best jewellery designers and make them produce their creation for the international market. I've met one of the two founders of this label, Vanita Bagri and really I was swept away by the great design and craftsmanship of the pieces. The jewellery is made in silver gold plated, with semi precious stones and an ethnic feel to them. Some of the neck pieces are so elaborated that they look like embroideries, they could be easily been sewn to a dress.
Here some pictures just to give you an idea of the wonderful collections. Keep an eye to their website, sometimes they organize a special sale and it is something not to be missed. http://www.labante.co.uk/
