Born in Slovenia, Lara has been devoted to fashion, jewellery and architecture from an early age. She moved to London in 1996 to study jewelry and metalwork at the Royal College of Art. The following year, she debuted her collection at London Fashion Week, won the New Generation Design Award and began a series of collaborations with fashion big-timers such as Gucci, Costume National and Lanvin. These days-when she's not consulting for Cartier-she creates gorgeous pieces for her eponymous line.
Lara Bohinc was nominated for Accessory Designer of the Year Award by the British Fashion Council in 2008, and awarded Jewellery Designer of the Year by Elle Style Awards in February 2009.
While retaining a deep respect for the traditional principles of her craft, she has drawn on her familiarity with industrial techniques and materials to revitalise jewellery design. Harnessing such technological processes as photo-etching, laser-cutting and computer design, she has fused modernity of style with classical design to achieve a contemporary yet timeless elegance.
