“Now in its third year, Rock Vault has established itself as the leading talent identifier for fine jewellers; one that leading international editors and retailers look to for the talent that is reshaping jewellery design. It’s with huge thanks to the panel and Stephen for their support and for selecting such a strong and diverse roster of names that we look forward to welcoming to London Fashion Week in its new Soho home.”
