Title: Eddie Borgo seeks Wholesale Sales Intern
Date: 3 January 2017 | 3:44 pm
Eddie Borgo began his exploration of adornment at university, establishing his pioneering point of view at that time. A fascination with discovering the symbolism in jewelry evolved from a stage of experimentation, when he began making jewelry as one-off pieces. After being introduced to a select number of stylists and editors, he was commissioned to create jewelry for the runways of Marchesa, Joseph Altuzarra, and Proenza Schouler. He formally launched his collection with Spring/Summer 2009.
Eddie Borgo’s design philosophy comes from an attraction to the timelessness in modern sculpture and shape, and an obsession with capturing this spirit in his work. As each collection evolves, so does his unique ability to redefine our ideas of modernity in jewelry, sculpture, and object.
In 2010 Eddie Borgo was awarded runner up in the CFDA / Vogue Fashion Fund. In 2011, Eddie Borgo won the CFDA Swarovski Award for innovation in accessory design and was a co-recipient of the first ever CFDA / Vogue Fashion Fund Tiffany & Co. Development grant.
