THE TEXAN AND THE TURK
Jo and Alp team up to bring you Naughty and Nice Holiday Shopping in SoHo, New York!
Here’s a little story about how the Jo Latham Holiday Pop-Up ended up inside Atelier Minyon in the heart of SoHo. It’s a full circle tale about serendipity, friendship and how chance meetings can take you on a wonderful journey.
The best part of pursuing a passion that leads to a second career is the people you meet along the way. Prior to the creation of Jo Latham and even before I sold my first piece of jewelry I was taking classes at the GIA and working towards a graduate gemology degree. It was a personal pursuit, a hobby born of my fascination with gemstones. On a trip to NYC in 2009 I wandered into the coolest jewelry boutique in SoHo and met a wild Turk named Alp Sagnak. The next 7 years are history. We traveled together to Amarillo, Austin, Fort Worth D.C. and Dallas as a team doing trunk shows and dazzling clients with Alp’s edgy, unique collections.
In 2012 I opened a Jo Latham Fine Jewelry Boutique in Texas. My offering had expanded to include many exciting designers including Alp but life presented an interesting turn…we moved to Brooklyn. And then another interesting turn, I was diagnosed with breast cancer in January 2015. This year has been about healing, perspective and pushing forward. So as it all began in 2009 with a fateful meeting we are reunited as friends and partners…Alp with his ever changing, deeply personal designs and me with a collection of talented and beautiful fine jewelry collections all under one roof for an exciting holiday shopping experience. Come see us this season, share a cup of tea, tell us your personal story and find the jewels of your dreams. Featured Designers include: Alp Sagnak, KC Designs, Lauren K , Meredith Marks, Phillips House, Ron Hami , Suneera, Suzanne Kalan, and Zaiken Jewelry.
