In late August, Sonia Therese was handpicked and invited to showcase our jewellery at New York Fashion Week. This opportunity came about after Sonia was "shoulder tapped" by a talent scout from the collective FlyingSolo and asked to apply for the "Ones To Watch" section of the show.
FlyingSolo is a collective or roughly 70 fashion and accessory designers who have a retail presence in Manhattan and who showcase their work at New York and Paris Fashion Weeks every year. In addition to the existing designers, FlyingSolo extends the invitation to emerging designers across the globe to apply for one of 10 spots. And it is one of these sought after spots that Sonia Therese has been offered.

Not an easy decision to make given the current 2020 global situation. However with the blessing of family, Sonia is making the journey to New York city on September 8th with the show taking place on September 13th (EST). Featuring existing best-sellers and new statement pieces, The New York Collection will be launching in Mid September to coincide with NYFW2020.
NOTE: While Sonia is away please be aware that your orders will be delayed until she returns to New Zealand in October. Sonia is in the USA from September 8 to 30th, and then will be in mandatory quarantine for 14 days when she re-enters New Zealand. Although Sonia will be working during this time, her ability to access many of the tools for jewellery making will be limited. We thank you for your understanding and your patience.
