New York Fashion Week got off to an early start on Monday night when Barneys and Diane von Furstenberg hosted a dinner at La Esquina for the L.A.-based CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund runner-up Jennifer Meyer. The jewelry designer is in town for her inaugural presentation at New York Fashion Week, with her husband Tobey Maguire. Meyer outfitted herself in a teal and brocade DVF shift with large glass paillettes and a slew of her pieces, like diamond bangles, a vibrant emerald-green cigar band and a cuff made from an 18-karat gold stick of hand-pavéd diamonds with two trillion accents on each end. She wore yellow-gold earrings with micro-pavé diamond-bordered green sapphires with a pavé diamond triangle drop.
Meyer’s upcoming collection features more statement pieces, in brighter colors and bigger stones than usual.
