Eddie Borgo grew up in Atlanta – he’s a talented sculptor who transitioned into jewelry design about ten years ago.
Eddie’s jewelry design career began with custom pieces he made for Tabitha Simmons, Patti Wilson, and Camilla Nickerson. A big break occurred when Phillip Lim selected Eddie to create custom jewelry for Lim’s spring/summer 2009 fashion show.
In 2009, the Eddie Borgo collection was launched at Barney’s New York, Colette in Paris, Liberty of London, and Joyce in Hong Kong. This line is different – merging an edgy street feel with high-end fashion style and various themes, such as rock and roll. There is an unmistakable modern energy that emanates from, and attracts consumers to these fun pieces.
Eddie Borgo’s creations for women and men can be found at boutiques and fine retailers around the world, in locations including New York, Beverly Hills, London, Paris, Milan, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Toronto, Moscow, Instanbul, Dubai, Riyadh, Seoul, Taiwan, Shanghai, and Melbourne. The collection is exclusively available online at NET-A-PORTER.
Eddie was runner up in 2012 for the CFDA/VOGUE Fashion Fund Award. In 2011, he won the CFDA Swarovski Award for Innovation in Accessory Design.
