LJ International appoints noted designer Omar Torres

Sep '05
Fastest growing jewelry companies, LJ International Inc reported that noted designer and Creative Director Omar Torres, best known for his work with Bvlgari and Movado will lead future product and design development for LJI through his own firm, OPUS7. Torres has been hired as creative director for LJI.

In his new role, Torres' OPUS7 firm will provide leadership in design overseeing the creation of new products for LJI's Lorenzo brand jewelry lines, sold worldwide through multiple retail channels, including the Company's own ENZO retail stores in China.

Torres brings some four decades of design experience to his new position at LJI. From his start as a designer at Van Cleef & Arpels from the mid-1960s through the 1970s, he became Chief Designer at Bvlgari SpA in 1979 and was instrumental in the creation what is called the ''Bvlgari style'' – bold forms created from a wide variety of stones and sometimes unconventional materials such as stainless steel. Samuel Beizer, former chairman of the jewelry design department at New York's Fashion Institute of Technology, has called Torres ''one of the top designers in the world''.

After leaving Bvlgari in 1994, Torres started his own custom-design firm. Two years later he was hired by the Movado Group to design and develop a line of fine jewelry based on the innovative style elements exemplified in the famous Movado ''museum watch''. He designed the best-selling Movado women's watch, Harmony, and branched out from jewelry into clocks, tabletops, crystal, gifts, accessories and public image.
