A glittering ballroom brimming with dazzling jewelry and packed to the rafters with the who’s who of the jewelry world – from global retailers, to leading independent stores, A-list press, influencers and VVVIP clients – was the scene at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas, for Le Vian‘s 23rd annual red carpet catwalk which hailed the key sentiments that will drive forward jewelry demand in 2023.
The Le Vian 2023 Trend Forecast distills the feelings and lessons of our time and ties these to jewelry that articulates these feelings. Seven members of the next generation of the LeVian family announced the 7 trends of 2023. Key sentiments include Alive! Beautiful Creations, arising from a primal desire to attach ourselves to life itself and to nature; Tranqulity, the state of inner peace we strive for when the backdrop to our lives and our world exhibits chaos and conflict; and Balance, a return to normalcy and possibility, expressed by emerald gemstones and emerald cuts, renowned for balance.
Multiple members of the LeVian family conducted a tribute for the 100th birthday of their late father and grandfather, highlighting how his characteristics and attributes have continually informed the values that have inspired the next generation of the LeVian family.
The LeVian Red Carpet Revue, which is widely acclaimed to be the world’s most authoritative fine jewelry trend forecast, also served as a fundraiser supporting children’s charities including St Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital and Jewelers for Children as well as the Diamonds Do Good organization that empowers people in the remote diamond producing areas of the world. In the last year, LeVian’s Red Carpet Revue events have raised over $1m for these chosen charities.
The broadcast quality production was streamed live by Le Vian as well as Kay, Jared, Belk and multiple independent retailers via their respective social media channels direct from Vegas.
Models on the runway included a friend of Le Vian, Andie Weinman, president of Continental Buying Group and the miraculous survivor of an illness which 2 years ago she was told was terminal, who was accompanied on the runway by her beloved dog Elvis. They both modeled designs from the Alive! Beautiful Creations collection.
