Exclusive: Jordan Askill's AW12 Installation

The Australian designer shows his new collection during LFW.

LFW is much celebrated for acting as a launch pad for emerging talent. And with the initiation of the British Fashion Council's Rock Vault, it looks to be setting this reputation in stone. The latest initiative of the BFC focuses on showcasing London's most innovative fine jewellery talent, and one of the designers selected to display his AW12 inside is our very own Sydney-to-Europe success story Jordan Askill.

Each designer is required to create a unique installation in which to display his or her collection, which couldn't really be any more perfect since Askill's other passion is sculpture. Drawing viewers in to a world he has created from his sculptural creations, the jewellery itself explores the swallow, panther and female form that have become the foundation for his work and he introduces The Sun Shines for You (Chapter 3 Part 2), which comprise 12 of his signature heart and star rings this time with birthstones.
