Nina Celebrates London Launch With Bespoke Dinner
Following her debut at Harrods in London, Nina hosted a private party with a select group of close friends and press to celebrate this landmark moment for the brand. Nina approached Fiona Leahy Design to create a dreamy botanical scene for the intimate dinner at Wild by Tart’s industrial studio on Eccleston place. The scene was embellished by Nina Runsdorf jewels displayed in organic terrariums, a perfect introduction to for her Harrods premiere and a nod to her first campaign. The designer was joined by her two daughters, Alexa and Kate, who flew in from New York for the occasion.
Nina Runsdorf Premieres at Harrods
Nina Runsdorf opened this April in the famed UK department store, making it her first international pop up boutique. Supported by Parisian creative agency Ohlman Consorti, Nina worked with NY based photographer Bobby Doherty to shoot the first campaign to present her collections to the London and international clientele walking the halls of this retail institution.
Picking from her favorite items and iconic Flip Rings, the highlight maybe her green emerald bracelet inspired by Klimt’s “Pathways” painting. Made entirely of different colored emeralds in blackened 18k gold, the piece reflects on the patience needed to find the stones and the collector nature of its creator.
“Last year I said my dream is to be in Harrods and here we are. It is such an honor to be showcasing my collection with Harrods. It has been a wonderful experience."
The full Flip and Artist collection are also available at Harrods and on Harrods.com for the duration of the month of April.

Nina Runsdorf diamonds cover Vanity Fair
Nina Runsdorf’s Old Mine Diamonds and signet ring grace the cover of February Vanity Fair on actress Laura Dern.
Old Mine Diamonds are a favorite of the designer who has an extensive collection of these vintage diamonds available for viewings at her atelier.
Nina says: "I love old mine diamonds because they look like they have been passed down through generations and are also less faceted than modern diamonds, making them easier to wear. Also it was such an honor to see them worn by Laura Dern. Thank you Vanity Fair"
R+Co Gets a Flair of Nina Runsdorf
Nina Runsdorf offered select press and buyers a preview of her new SS2019 collections at R+Company in New York City this November. A personal collector of modern art and furniture, Nina paired her latest enamel creations like the Artist Collection to be displayed at the boutique’s downtown New York location.
For Fall/Winter 2018 the designer also resurrected her iconic Sliced Diamonds encircling them with brightly colored enamel. “I felt that it was time to bring back Slice in a big way, and with a more contemporary edge,” says Runsdorf.
The result is a playful contrast between the refined and elegant appeal of Sliced Diamonds with a fresh, pop-art bent of colored enamel.
