GARDE is proudly featuring jewelry from Stephanie Lake Design. Lake, who hails from Minneapolis, is creating decidedly unique one of a kind jewelry pieces. In the words of Minnesota Monthly, “They are wholly unlike anything else, combining elements of Hollywood Regency mid-century, 70s-era Fleetwood Mac, and glam rock. Lake is a stylemaker in a class of her own.”

The fifth scholar in the world to earn a Ph.D. in Decorative Arts, Design History, and Material Culture, Stephanie Lake’s jewelry designs are informed by her work as a curator, archivist and auction specialist and interior designer. Lake’s academic focus on decorative arts from the 18th century to the current day centered on personal adornment, fashion, and interiors. Her research included stints in Paris, London, Istanbul, Tokyo, New York and Los Angeles, working with some of the world’s most extraordinary collections and collectors. While in Los Angeles, Lake worked as curator-in-charge of the Bonnie Cashin Archive at UCLA. Her work to secure and promote Cashin’s legacy included establishing The Bonnie Cashin Foundation.

Stephanie Lake will join us at GARDE on Thursday, May 10 from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. for a special Trunk Show featuring her newest designs. Just a preview…
