A Day In The Life Of: Eddie Borgo, Jewelry Designer


Over the past year, Eddie Borgo has become one of New York’s jewelry design darlings. To wit, his neo-punk chic cone bracelet was the accessory for editors to be sporting during fashion week. Like many young American designers, Borgo headed this week to Paris for sales appointments—and yes, some shopping and parties. Here’s what Eddie did yesterday.

October 3, 2009

8:50 a.m. Wake up. Cappuccino! Yesterday was great. Ikram Goldman, Sally Singer, and Mark Holgate all came by.

10:00 a.m. Photographer Thierry Chomel arrives to shoot the collection for WWD. I met him last season; it was so nice to catch up.

11:15 a.m. Lauren Santo Domingo and Derek Blasberg arrive to choose pieces for Lauren for an Interview shoot. Keegan (Singh, Borgo’s boyfriend) says hello in his pink bathrobe. Lauren loves the pointed floral quartz earrings and wears a necklace out.

12:30 p.m. Jump in a taxi and head to St. Germain for lunch with designer Jen Kao at Brasserie Lipp. We sit next to Vogue Italia‘s Franca Sozzani. I didn’t have the nerve to ask for a photo. She’s so beautiful! 

3:00 p.m. Stop by Philippe Jousse after lunch. I find this great circular table by Maria Pergay.

3:20 p.m. Run into Cire Trudon to pick up some candles.

3:45 p.m. Call from my showroom, Valery Demure. 10 Corso Como in Milan and Restir in Tokyo have decided to buy my collection!

4:00 p.m. I meet Lisa Finklestein, the jewery designer at J.Crew, at Karry’O. It’s the most fantastic vintage jewelry store in Paris. We go through all the trays and get to meet Karry.

5:35 p.m.A quick glass of wine with Lisa and my publicist Patrick before heading back to the Ritz.

7:05 p.m. Giovanna Battaglia from stops in on her way to Loewe. I love her new boots.

9:30 p.m. Head to a party at our friend Kevin Wendle’s beautiful apartment. We hang out on the balcony enjoying the view and catching up with friends—and get introduced to Katy Perry.

11:00 p.m. We all hit the Pierre Hardy party.

1:00 a.m. A night cap and mini burgers at the Hemingway before bed. Bonne nuit!
