Behind the scenes: VL x Cadet NY Men's Fashion Show Collaboration!

Posted by Vanessa Perel-Panar on

For New York Men's Fashion Week, Vanessa Lianne had the privilege of collaborating with the brand Cadet for its spring/summer '17 collection runway show.

Cadet is New York's top Brooklyn-based menswear brand, known for its military inspired collection focusing on precision, quality, clean lines and innovative fabrications. Cadet founders Raul Arevalo and Brad Schmidt are CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Finalists 2015, Design Entrepreneur NYC Winners 2015 and International Woolmark Prize US Nominee 2015/16.

The new SS17 collection is inspired by Rome and believe us when we say it is spectacular. It was an honor to collaborate with these very talented designers, and Vanessa Lianne Jewelry was the perfect compliment to their new collection.

For the show, models wore Zephyr Necklaces, Tavion Necklaces, Tavion Rings, Custom Tavion chokers and custom Tavion wrap bracelets. It was beyond inspiring (and a lot of fun) styling the models and getting to be part of such a beautiful show!

Here are some images from the show and behind the scenes. This collection doesn't come out until Spring 2017, but you can shop the jewelry right off the runway now!

VL Jewelry and Sustainability

Posted by Vanessa Perel-Panar on


Slate Ring with Diamonds

A recent Discover magazine article detailed the growing problems regarding gold production, and its potentially negative impact on the environment, most notably in South America. Gold mining can lead to deforestation, and mercury used in mining operations can damage rivers and ecological food chains.

At Vanessa Lianne, we take these matters seriously, and strive to use the most environmentally sound and ethical practices possible in creating our line. We do this not only for our own satisfaction, but also so that our customers can feel good about wearing the pieces we create. Here are just a few of our methods:

- We ensure our jewelry is cast from 100% recycled metals. We only utilize vendors that purchase metal from green refineries.

- All diamonds used in our jewelry are certified through the Kimberley process, a joint initiative created to curb usage of conflict diamonds industry-wide.

- All of our plating companies take advantage of the most sustainable methods. Our electroplating processes employ the latest non-cyanide based chemistries, and safest methods around.

The environment -- and the jewelry industry's impact on it -- is something very dear to our hearts, so we do all we can. However, customers are the most powerful change agents. Doing your research (making sure recycled metals are used, and that companies are minimizing their environmental impact) is the best way to "do something." Collectively, your purchasing choices are a huge influencer.
