Donyale Luna was the original black Supermodel, although her name is rarely mentioned and her legacy has been somewhat forgotten.
Being a bit of a fashion addict and a vintage enthusiast means that jewellery has always been a big part of my life. Growing up, the women in my life used jewellery as armour to face the world and and all the stops were pulled out at the weekend for a big night out. Being a teenager in the 90s, jewellery went hand in hand with the dance and hip hop cultures that I grew up with.
Vintage for me is all about the 70s, 80s and 90s - from 70s disco, to 80s power dressing and the era of the supermodel in the 90s - those decades were amazing times for creativity, hedonism and style.
Now that fashion is becoming slower and more timeless - we can take inspiration from every fashion decade. We get to mix designer with vintage and high street and create our own look. And I love the power of jewellery to make things new and fresh, to take an outfit to a new level. You'll often see me throw on a chunky 80s chain over my loungewear to cheer myself up - I always look for wearable pieces that fit as easily with a T-shirt or a hoodie as with a killer dress.
Jagged Metal is all about making vintage relevant for today - to feel versatile, contemporary and cool.
