Jewelry designer Rachel Blumenthal cut her fashion teeth as a publicist for Yves Saint Laurent. At the suggestion of fashion editors and buyers, she launched her own “new look” in 2004: Rachel Leigh, a bold line that’s chic and well ahead of the style curve. Rachel Leigh cuffs, drop earrings and chain necklaces are constructed from a mélange of materials — satin ribbon, seed beads, snakeskin and antique gold — and she strikes an elegant note with her gorgeous enamels in of-the-moment colors. The line has garnered much-coveted editorial space in Vogue and Elle, and is a fave of downtown-uptown Gossip Girl Blake Lively.
Former Yves Saint Laurent publicist Rachel Bravman launched Rachel Leigh jewelry in the Fall of 2004. To date, Bravman has expanded her label from the living room of her apartment to a company that now boasts showrooms in New York, Los Angeles, Dallas, San Francisco, Sweden, Germany, Japan, Korea and Canada-and a customer base that includes high-end department stores as well as numerous privately-owned boutiques around the world. Rachel Leigh is a favorite among young Hollywood-with a list of celebrity clients including Jessica Biel and Mischa Barton and Lauren Conrad and is frequently featured in top women's and lifestyle magazines, including <i>Elle</i>, <i>Lucky</i> and <i> WWD </i>. Versatile and unique, Rachel Leigh is an exciting addition to Gilt Groupe. <a href=" http://www.gilt.com/blog/2009/01/27/441-rachel-leigh-find-the-style-for-you">Visit Our Rachel Leigh Blog</a>
