Austin Fashion Designers, Boutiques and Industry Fashionably Austin - Austin Fashion Connected

Skulls, snakes, bats, knives and guns–along with soft, classic stones–made up the strikingly rich jewelry display at Malverde on Thursday evening. Hosted by Joanna Latham in downtown Austin, fashion mavens got a chance to try on interesting and exquisite jewelry. Turkish-born Alp Sagnak, a designer based in New York, warmly welcomed guests and shared about his creative work.

Sagnak fuses classic Ottoman Empire jewelry with edgier designs. Each unique piece is crafted by hand; no two pieces are the same. Inspired by the duality of the human psyche, some of his pieces embody a magical, gothic air while others emanate refinement and beauty. One cannot help but want to wear any one of Sagnak’s pieces, whether it’d be a mermaid or a delicate stone, for they will not go unnoticed. Sagnak’s boutique is located on Spring Street in SoHo, New York.
