Jewellery designer recognised in Queen’s Birthday Honours List.

Lara Bohinc was honoured with an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honour’s List 2012.

The jewellery and accessories designer, who has recently teamed up with the International Palladium Board to make a collection created in palladium, was honoured for services to the fashion industry.


Bohinc is originally from Slovenia but moved to the UK to study jewellery and metalwork at the Royal College of Art in London. She went on to launch a brand under her own name in 1997 and has since expanded the company from a jewellery brand into a lifestyle brand that includes handbags, scarves, shoes and other accessories.

Since 2000 Bohinc has also worked as a jewellery design consultant for Cartier.
