As is customary for this season, a time of contemplation of the past year has us excited for goal making in the future. Its been an amazing year for SOPHIE BLAKE NY, and we are so grateful for You, our SB Tribe and all that you have helped us accomplish. Here is a recap of 2018 and a New Year's wish for continued creative growth and so much more 2019!
Accomplishments in 2018
The SB Journal
A great accomplishment for the SOPHIE BLAKE NY brand has been reaching the goal of building a community of jewelry lovers and a place to share our creative inspiration. It is through this desire that The SB Journal was born with ISSUE N°1: THE SB JOURNAL LAUNCH - A TIMELESS & CONFIDENT WOMAN in April 2018. We have enjoyed sharing the pillars of the SOPHIE BLAKE NY design aesthetic and how our love for fashion, pop culture, sustainablity and art inspire the jewelry design process.
Newest Jewelry Collection - Mayakoba
Our latest jewelry collection, Mayakoba launched in May 2018. The Mayakoba collection is inspired by Sophie's trip to the secluded, natural beauty and eco-friendly Mayakoba resort. We are so proud of the success of the Mayakoba collection that intersects the sophistication of resort style with ancient Mayan and Mexican culture and conscious fashion. The collection has helped us further our goal towards sustainability by incorporating recycled brass and sterling silver. A commitment to eco-friendly practices ensures our support of gemstone suppliers, metalsmiths and other artisans; in a circular economy of companies, workers and products that are proudly Made in the USA.
SB Chats: The SB Journal series
One of the desires for the launch of The SB journal has been to create not just an inspirational place for jewelry lovers but to be a source of empowerment for women everywhere. SOPHIE BLAKE NY is so honored to be a part of a community of female creatives; of women who are not just building businesses but have the gifts and talents that others should take notice of and be inspired by. And thus, SB Chats journal series was born to highlight female entrepreneurs that Sophie wants you to be aware of. Women everywhere are doing amazing things and we are excited to bring you more chats with amazing boss babes this year.
Washington DC Press and Local Pop-Ups
SOPHIE BLAKE NY is honored to have amazing local partnerships in the DC area and would like to thank all of our pop-up store locations like The Wharf, d/Elven, and Union Market. We are so incredibly proud of several press features we've had this year including Washington Life Magazine and DC Modern Luxury. Check out our most recent feature in the September Issue of Capital File Magazine! We are excited to continue collaborations with like-minded fashion and beauty brands.
Future Endeavors in 2019
Nothing In Between
Nothing In Between Studio nail salon (NIB) "has been evaluating the culture of nail salons locally and globally to reinvent the way people think about nail & spa services." Sophie is excited to present a collaboration with NIB and to celebrate the mutual commitment to conscious fashion and eco-friendly products. The NIB event is coming February 2019, get updates on our Events page.
The Spirit of FOUR
Recently, we celebrated our 4th Year Anniversary and reflected on the meaning of four. We discussed the pressure to manage four phases of our day; and the need for balance and completeness. In the spirit of four, Sophie has decided to take time to recharge and be inspired to design a new collection. She is also traveling to Los Angeles, San Diego, and Hawaii and is celebrating her five year anniversary with her husband Dan. In December of 2019, SOPHIE BLAKE NEW YORK is thrilled to celebrate 5 years with you; the lovely SB Tribe.
A new year means new ways to live differently. SOPHIE BLAKE NY partnered with Sasha Bruce and proceeds from purchases in December went to help prevent youth homelessness in DC.In the spirit of giving back, we have decided to double the donation from 2018.
Sasha Bruce Youthwork leads the campaign to prevent youth homelessness in the Washington DC and Metropolitan area.
Ok SB Tribe, its been great goal casting with you, make sure your goal planning is better than Michelle Tanner's!
Happy New Year!
