About ANINE BING:
ANINE BING is a Los Angeles based fashion brand founded by Anine Bing, Founder and Chief Creative Officer, and Nicolai Bing, Founder and Chief Executive Officer. Inspired by Scandinavian simplicity and American energy, ANINE BING has built a global fashion house focused on everyday wardrobe essentials and investment pieces for modern women seeking a timeless yet rebellious approach to style. Powered by a highly engaged social-media following and a modern approach to immediate fulfillment of merchandise, the brand has become a multimillion-dollar business, and growing, since its launch in 2012.
Mejuri is the category-defining fine jewelry brand designing pieces to elevate your every day. Feeling disconnected from the narrative fine jewelry is an occasional purchase typically marketed to men, Co-founder and CEO Noura Sakkijha leveraged her learnings as a third-generation jeweler to launch the brand in 2015: resulting in redefining the way women think of and purchase fine jewelry – for themselves. The company pioneered the ‘drop’ model in the fine jewelry industry and refreshes its collections weekly. Mejuri’s success is inextricably linked to the brand’s highly engaged community, including over one million Instagram followers. The brand has sole 2.8M pieces of jewelry since inception and is worn by celebrities such as Selena Gomez, Lizzo, Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Oprah, Bella Hadid, Emily Blunt and Margot Robbie. In 2020, the brand launched The Mejuri Empowerment Fund in support of higher education for underrepresented women and non-binary individuals. To learn more about Mejuri, please visit: www.mejuri.com.
