Chimento has long been synonymous with unique and exclusive Italian gold creations. We caught up with Federica Chimento for this year’s “Viva Las Vegas” series to find out that her perpetual cool and calm demeanor at the show isn’t just an accident, she works for it!
COUTURE: How many years have you been exhibiting at COUTURE?
Federica Chimento: Since the very beginning when the show was hosted at the Phoenician Hotel in Scottsdale Arizona.
COUTURE: Vegas Uniform?
FC: Business “relaxed” with a splash of color…nothing too serious….
COUTURE: Vegas Mantra?
FC: The one and only….what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas!
COUTURE: Vegas Theme Song?
FC: Diamonds are Forever from Shirley Bassey
COUTURE: Vegas Evening Ritual?
FC: 30 minutes of pilates in my room after a long day of work. This helps me recharge the batteries and be ready to socialize in the evenings.
COUTURE: Sanity Tip?
FC: Change from high heel shoes into flats and walk outside…..
COUTURE: What’s the one piece/collection you’re most excited to launch?
FC: Our Double Spring collection is definitely our main focus this year. A selection of flexible bracelets and necklaces completely reversible that would allow the wearer to have two completely different looks within the same piece of jewelry.
