Jeffrey Atlanta Spring Fashion Preview with Special Guest Cathy Waterman
On Wednesday, February 22, the fashion-set gathered for the second annual Spring preview fashion show at Jeffrey Atlanta. This year, special guest, and jeweler to the stars, Cathy Waterman, was there to adorn the models and show off her latest collection of fine jewelry.
The show did not disappoint. Models walked the runway in a menagerie of looks and designers ranging from less-known and up-and-coming like Australian-designer Maticeveski to the quintessential Givenchy. The looks were bold and fun, especially the Gucci explosion look with a bedazzled bomber jacket. Check out some of the looks in the gallery below.
While the models were walking, famed jewelry designer Cathy Waterman, whose jewels have adorned A-list celebrities such as Julia Roberts, Kerry Washington and Nicole Kidman, explained the inspiration behind each piece the models wore.
“It’s about going back to the idea of leisure.” she said.
Incorporating some unique gemstones like Peruvian Opal and Chrysoprase, her pieces were stunning. After the show, the designer gave us a sneak peak at the full spring collection. The must-have? An pinwheel ring that actually spins. Made with ruby, sapphire and emeralds, the flash of light and spark that spins around is mesmerizing, This and many of the other pieces were what she called “a day at the circus”.
