>> We caught up with jewelry designer Anna Sheffield at last night's Creatures of Comfort Fashion's Night Out event, where she told us not only why she loves Fashion Week, but also all about her new project: a bridal and commitment line. Read on for more from our interview with the designer.
What's your favorite thing about Fashion Week?
"The best part about Fashion Week is that you get to see people from all around the world around this time every year and how awesome they look. It's really good inspiration for designers."
What are your FNO plans?
"I just launched a capsule collection called Bing Bang for WeSC. I just came from the party at the store on Lafayette. It's a small capsule collection of jewelry inspired by NYC and I also created these rose gold headphones for them — it's my favorite thing."
How do you stay sane during Fashion Week?
"Lots of green tea and cookies."
What are you currently working on?
I'm launching a new bridal and commitment jewelry collection next Tuesday. I have about 40 styles, so with all the variations, there are hundreds of pieces. It's based on the idea of bridal and commitment so you can mix and match. Promise rings, stacking rings, or anniversary pieces.
What shows do you plan on attending?
"I'm definitely going to see Jeremy Scott. It's the most inspiring part of the week for me every season. I'm also going to see Mara Hoffman. Those are two people I love. I'll see what else I fit in this week."
