Fall 2012- For its fall jewelry collection, The Limited is collaborating with The Savannah College of Art and Design in a unique partnership of commerce and design. The Limited’s mission is to provide students with real business experience while also offering its customers original jewelry designs. After a formal presentation by students in March, the iconic women’s retailer chose twenty jewelry styles to feature in their fall jewelry line. The SCAD designers include Lauren Funk, Olivia Norton, Yudie Shan, Sam Anderson, Jennifer Williams, Miao Mai, Lillian G. Ray, Christina Y Lu, and Emily Morrow. With a range of talents and passions, these students produced creative necklaces, bracelets, earrings and rings for customers. Using The Limited’s Holiday line as inspiration, the designs combine edgy and elegant with pearl beads, geometric shapes, tassels, stones, and statement pendants. The students’ jewelry is now being sold at The Limited in Savannah as well as online at http://www.thelimited.com .
