How lucky are we to have worked with Hovey on not one, but TWO seasons of LA Style Fashion Week thus far, with her gorgeous jewelry?

What inspired you to become a jewelry designer?
My mom! She was a lady of STYLE! I went with her to her tailors and played with her jewelry growing up.

Which designers or brands do you admire in fashion?
Prada, Stella McCartney, and Amy Kathryn

What is the best part about being a designer?
Seeing your design ideas realized…I still get chills when I get my new samples back every time. Then of course when customers wear my products!

If you could get your designs into the hands of any celebrity, who would it be?
Not any really, never pursue any celebrity even though we are in LA. I would love my designs get into the hands of any woman who are strong, beautiful, hardworking, independent who buy their own clothes and accessories. And if they love my designs and tell their friends, that’s a bonus!

What would be your next passion or career option if you weren’t designing?
I’d be a librarian or researcher.

What is the ultimate goal as a designer?
To keep working, creating and making jewelry for as many as possible.

Where can people find you online?_hbw1201
HoveyLee.com and we post on Instagram almost everyday

Can you describe the results from your shoot featuring your designs alongside Kinsman Swim Swim?
Would love to do a shoot with Kinsman! LA Fashion Week in Oct 2014 and March 2015 were absolutely a blast! We got great pictures and accolades from the show, how fun! Joanna is a sweetheart to work with and a great friend.

Thank you so much Hovey for all of your help and being an incredible part of these Kinsman Swim runway shows, and lending these pieces to our shows. What a perfect match – we can’t wait to do it again soon!
