The time is right… for white. I am excited about the prospect of soon being able to wear my favorite white dresses, white shorts, and of course, white jewelry. And, FORNASH (one of my go-to brands) has some of the best white accessories and jewelry to be found. Stunning earrings, necklaces, and trademark bracelets are just the beginning. But, there is so much more.
Stephanie Fornash Kennedy launched the FORNASH brand after vacationing in the Caribbean. The bright colors and richness of the tropics fueled her passion for design and style. Upon her arrival back to Washington D.C., she began designing custom handbags. In November 2002, six months after Stephanie sold her first custom handbag, she opened the FORNASH boutique in Georgetown.
In August 2003, she introduced FORNASH for the first time to retail buyers at Accessories the Show in New York City. Today, retailers can shop her collection at several tradeshows around the country.
As the wholesale business continued to grow, Stephanie broadened the FORNASH line with scarves and clothing, but jewelry was the runaway success. A pivotal moment for the FORNASH brand occurred in December 2009, when the FORNASH Boa Scarf was featured in Oprah’s magazine on her coveted “O List.” This publicity instantly gave FORNASH national brand recognition, new fans and new clients. The secret was out!
FORNASH is still located in the Washington, D.C. area, where the ever-expanding collection can be discovered through its website and flagship store. The FORNASH collection is also available in over 3000 retail stores in the US, as well as in Canada, Europe, Australia and, of course, the Caribbean, where it all began. See the entire line at FORNASH.
