In true rock-and-roll fashion, Los Angeles-based jewelry designer Azature is going on a world tour to showcase his ultra-luxe creations. With 70 years of his family’s fine jewelry craftsmanship behind him, Azature has access to some of the highest-quality gems in the world. The Black Glove World Tour will hit six cities this fall as he launches his private atelier services and introduces his high-end eponymous line globally.
In 2008 Azature was selected as a featured designer in GenArt’s Fresh Faces in Fashion, the showcase credited with launching the careers of Zac Posen and Peter Som, and was also a semi-finalist for the prestigious Ecco Domani Fashion Fund. One year later, he added AZATURE Atelier, a black-glove, custom jewelry service, to his offerings.
As the world’s premier black diamond designer, Azature has registered a specific shade of the gem in his name, and is also dedicated to providing customers with stones. Starlets like Rihanna, Lindsay Lohan, Kelly Clarkson, Kim Kardashian, Fergie and Beyonce have worn his pieces.
The Black Glove World Tour will consist of a series of intimate dinners hosted by high-profile clients—from royalty to Fortune 500 types—who love the “007” appeal of having a private jeweler create custom pieces just for them. The tour comes right on the heels of his first international campaign with photographer Andrew Macpherson, entitled First Lady of Azature. These events will be held in Tokyo, Riyadh, Hong Kong, Moscow, New York and Los Angeles.
After the whirlwind world tour wraps, Azature’s creations will launch at Harvey Nichols in Saudi Arabia in October. Visit www.azature.com to shop online or book a private appointment with Azature himself.
