Super-luxe Jewellery Collection

As if my statement jewellery obsession needed any further encouragement, my magpie eye, drew me to Designer Nicole Akong from Akon London, while strolling around the LFW hub at Somerset House where I oohed and aah'd over the stunningly over-the-top statement jewellery collection she had on display at her stand which in my opinion can only be described as wearable art.


West-Indian born ex City-worker Nicole Akong started out developing jewellery in 2008 and Akon London, was only launched at the start of 2010, but has already gained a cult following, having already been featured within publications such as Grazia UK, The Sunday Times Style and Harper's Bazaar, in addition to several fashion blogs.
The Midas, couture influenced collection consists of hand made bejeweled necklaces and anklets made from a stunningly random combination of goose feathers, chunky chains, faceted stones and velvet ties that have a theatrical eclectic and exotic nature.
