Describe the Kosmima line.

Kosmima offers a collection of fashion jewelry handcrafted in Athens, Greece with a guarantee of authenticity. Our debut line is composed of bronze with silver or gold-plate and Swarovski crystals designed by George Kalaitzakis. The price points are extremely affordable for the quality, design and materials we offer.

 

What do you think will draw retailers to your collection this upcoming season?

Geometric designs that emphasize repetition will draw retailers to our collection. We’re also excited to feature an exclusive black and gold-plated motif making each item a statement piece.

 

How did you first get started in the fashion accessory business?

For years prior to moving to the States, I managed a fashion jewelry store on the island of Lefkada, Greece. I gained an international perspective for the popularity of the designs we now carry. Kosmima strives to make customers feel as if they had just traveled to find a token piece of jewelry.

 

How do you personally stay up-to-date with fashion?

Fashion is a personal statement that can be followed anywhere. For business purposes, we use fashion forecasting subscriptions and peruse fashion blogs, celebrity style websites and magazines.

 

What do you consider to be the world’s best fashion city?

The world’s best city for fashion is New York City for its diversified beauty and endless opportunities in fashion.

 

What three items are essential to you during market week?

Three essentials to market week are enthused buyers, our inventory, and most importantly, a warm and friendly smile.
