In this episode 13 (in English), we set off to meet Monica Sordo – the rising jewelry designer based in New York.
Her brand – Monica Sordo Jewerly is the wonderful story of a calling to return home that turned into a life project. Monica was born in Caracas. She left Venezuela at an early age to study abroad.
She studied Fashion Styling in Milan, worked for Marie-Claire while studying Merchandising in Madrid and in 2009, she moved to New York to work with Christian Louboutin.
but after years working in the fashion industry, she began to suspect that her calling lay elsewhere and returned home to create her jewelry brand, beautiful timeless pieces.
Monica is a traveller at heart and at the same time she is deeply rooted in the Latin design community she is very active supporting.
Today, her work has been featured in leading fashion publishers from Vogue, L’Officiel to The New York Times and her collection can be found in retailers around the world,
including Net-A-Porter, Le Printemps, Barney’s (where she exploded) and Browns to name just a few. The journey – started almost a decade ago- was not straightforward, but organic as she explains… I loved interviewing her and hope you will enjoy this beautiful journey in her company.
Enjoy your listening.
