If you have ever been to one of The Jewellery Cut’s live events, you will undoubtedly remember the colourful jewels of Akansha Sethi, who blends heritage Indian influences and techniques, like bright enamel work and gem carving, with contemporary styling.
Sethi, who will return for the fifth time to The Jewellery Cut Live this October, is currently taking part in a philanthropic trunk show with Aispi, an online marketplace that showcases independent European fashion brands.
The online trunk show, which runs from 19th June to 13th July, 2020, will raise funds for charity. The designer has pledged that 100% of the proceeds from sales of Akansha Sethi jewellery bought through Aispi will be donated to Jan Sahas, which empowers socially excluded communities in India, and Le Refuge, a French charity that aims to prevent isolation and suicide amongst young people in the LGBTQ+ community.
For the Aispi trunk show, Sethi will showcase her popular Nritya collection inspired by the history and art of the City Palace in Udaipur, a Rajasthan architectural marvel that blends Medieval, European and Chinese styles. The collection of rings and earrings star hand-carved precious stones and vibrant enamelwork – a hallmark of the Akansha Sethi brand.
The Deco collection is also included in the trunk show, which is an innovative series of transformable pendants that can be worn in six ways, including as a pair of earrings, a brooch and a pendant. This range was inspired by the Art Deco movement, an aesthetic that can clearly be picked out in the lines and colours used in the collection.
