"I sort of grew up in the lap of fashion. My mom was a model for Halston in New York in the 70s. My father was the owner of a men's clothing line here in Atlanta. And they were two very powerful people - so I definitely got shot out of that cannon!
"This entire line is all mixed up with family. The French influence is pretty obvious. Of course, there's the name, Verdier! Pronounced “Vair-dee-A” But I want our jewelry collections to feel like you’ve just stumbled across a French street market. An unexpected mix of contrasts that works its magic out through accident. Which is exactly how I experience family, ha-ha!
“Something else. The grace and diversity of the style culture of the past is missing from the market right now. I want to bring that allure back into the light and let it play. Let it be playful! What we wear can be such a flirty, easy way to adorn our days and our outlook. I mean, it’s only jewelry – but it’s part of how we see ourselves and others is the wonderous mirror.”
