Alex Monroe at London Fashion Weekend

Not long now until the London Fashion Weekend (LFW) event kicks off outside the Natural History Museum (26 - 30 September 2007). One of the top jewelry fashion designers who will be appearing at this year's  show is Alex Monroe.

Twenty years ago Alex Monroe set up a little studio in South London to design and make jewellery. In all that time Alex has maintained the quality and principles that he first started out with.  All of the jewellery is still handmade in London to the same exacting standards that would be demanded of such an exclusive designer.

Alex produces two collections of jewellery a year as well as commissions where he works directly with clients making their 'dream' wedding or engagement rings (in 18ct gold or platinum).

For those of you in the UK you might even recognize some of Alex's work that has appeared in "EastEnders" and "Inspector Linley".  Outside of the UK you may also have seen some of his designs in the film "Love Actually".

The Dragon Fly earrings, Hummingbird necklace and intricately designed Lockets shown here are all made in 18ct gold. All three are available to buy at this year's show where you can see much more of the exclusive designer jewellery range from Alex Monroe
