Renowned jewelry designer Kendra Scott has made a name for herself and now a home – to not one but two stores in the Houston area! This designer offers a one-of-a-kind in-house Color Bar™, where customers can choose the jewelry silhouette as well as the gemstone colors for a tailored-to-your-own-taste piece. Kendra Scott gives us the details of the newest collection – where her inspiration comes from, the details on Color Bar™ and which A-list celeb she’s vying to see wearing Kendra Scott jewels.
You chose Houston for not one but two of your stores. Do you envision Houston becoming a fashion-forward city?
I think Houston is already on track to become a fashion-forward city. Dallas is always looked to as the fashion mecca of the south, but with new shopping venues like CityCentre, Houston International Fashion Week, and the growing number of fashion bloggers, the city is well on its way to becoming a fashion destination. I couldn’t be more thrilled with our two new stores being a part of this up and coming fashion city.
Describe the women who wears your label?
The woman I envision wearing our jewelry is fashion-forward, has a vivacious personality and is not afraid of turning heads when she walks in a room. These are the women who truly bring my collections to life!
You have already achieved so much. Where do you see yourself in five-ten years from now?
I still have to pinch myself sometimes because I truly am living my dream! In five years, I hope to have an array of Kendra Scott boutiques across the country, and even internationally while continuing my most important job, being a mom, to the very best of my ability.’
How did you come up with the Color Bar™?
My idea for the Color Bar™ was absolutely an epiphany moment. It all started with a dream I had. At one of my first offices, I saw that gals on my team would pick out our metal silhouettes and choose stone colors to set in them when they needed that perfect piece to go with an outfit. In my dream, I envisioned that every woman had access to this, and thus the Color Bar™ was born! Our Color Bar™ is now both an online and in-store experience that allows you to choose from 26 stones and 23 silhouettes to create custom jewelry for any occasion. Our in-store Color Bar™ is designed to feel as though you’re at a bar but instead of enjoying cocktails, you’re indulging in your favorite mix of stones to create a custom, one-of-a-kind piece!
What celebrities do you see wearing your line in the future?
I still get just as tickled every time I see a celebrity wearing my designs. It is such a thrill and an honor to see Hollywood A-listers in Kendra Scott jewelry. I would absolutely love to have a young fashion icon like Blake Lively or Taylor Swift rocking our jewels!
Get the Kendra Scott Color Bar™ and jewelry experience at either location in Houston located in Rice Village or CityCentre for a truly unique pieces or visit her store online.
