Former Jeremy Hoye and Union Jewellery employee goes it alone.
A former employee of Jeremy Hoye and Union Jewellery in Brighton has launched her own online jewellery and accessories boutique.
Hanna Nicholson unveiled The Collective Boutique site yesterday, offering jewellery and accessories from British and international designers with "serious style and personality".
The site has made its debut with a curated selection of eight designer brands, including Rosita Bonita, Dark Horse Ornament, John & Pearl and Buba.
Nicholson said of the launch: “The Collective is all about promoting beautifully made, affordable fashion and accessories. I’m really excited about also showcasing British design including recent graduates like Nicola Brighton and Sabina Savage, as well as international talent which is not widely represented in the UK like RockLove Jewelry. I hope The Collective will appeal to females of all ages, as well as their gift-buying partners.”
Nicholson attended jewellery classes as Central Saint Martins prior to working for jewellery retailers. She has launched the site from her base in Brighton. She plans to open a bricks-and-mortar Collective Boutique shop, working closely with jeweller Dominique Lucas on the space.
The Collective Boutique also has several blogger collaborations in the pipeline, and pre-Christmas and SS14 new arrivals. Nicholson also plans to launch an own-brand jewellery line for The Collective Boutique.
