Since it was founded 30 years ago, the Women’s Jewelry Association has evolved from a five-person operation that served as a haven of sorts for women in business to hash out ideas to a 1,000-person organization that helps foster leadership for jewelry executives.
Each year, the WJA throws a gala to honor industry hands who exemplify the group’s mission for the advancement of women. WWD sat down with former WJA president Phyllis Bergman and incoming president Andrea Hansen to talk about the organization’s mission, this year’s gala and the state of the jewelry industry.
Alberta Ferretti's "Rainbow Week" sweaters are back. The designer closed her #MFW show with a few day-of-the-week sweaters, which first debuted on the catwalk last January as part of the pre-fall 2017 collection. #wwdfashion (📷: @delphineachard)
