Illuminations Launch Party

Last week at Vanessa Mooney's Farmhouse, Live FAST Mag teamed up with us to put on Vanessa Mooney's ILLUMINATIONS COLLECTION launch party! We invited all of our closest friends for a night of drinks, jewels & fun! Where we shared our newest collection and look book! Sangria, dancing and exchanges of inspiration filled the air, making a perfect Friday night. We snapped some photos and behind the scenes shots from the party for you to see. Keep on scrolling to check them out!

A peek at The Illuminations Collection
"I feel as if some of these pieces have an Indian feel, I started designing some of these pieces while I was in Bali last year. But also, New York had a lot to do with this collection…I wanted this collection to show a bit more sophistication, a bit more simplicity with a sexy edge. I wanted it to feel a bit more universal."
- VM

Each piece in this collection was inspired by LA natives. There are all sorts of people in Los Angeles with a variety of passions and interests. They love the mountains, they love the the ocean, but they also love to have a night on the town with friends. Vanessa enjoys designing jewelry that moves from day to night. She constantly mixes different cultures and styles into her designs in order to create these special pieces.
