OBANDO OPENS JEWELRY: Los Angeles-based designer Juan Carlos Obando celebrated the upcoming launch of his jewelry collection with a dinner at Chateau Marmont on Thursday hosted by Lisa Love, Katherine Ross, Rochelle Gores Fredston and Angelique Soave. “You’ll get a transcription of my speech tomorrow,” quipped the Colombian-born designer, who said the dinner was “a thank-you to everyone who has supported me over the last 10-plus years.”

The 22-piece collection for women and men will launch at Barneys New York this holiday season, followed by rollouts at A+R boutiques in Los Angeles, Alchemist in Miami and Moda Operandi online. Wholesaling from $80 to $250, the collection comprises bracelets, rings and necklaces made from yellow and rose gold alloy, white bronze and sterling silver.

In addition to a past nomination for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund, Obando has found support among Los Angeles’ art crowd, with Los Angeles County Museum of Art board members Ross and Willow Bay often sporting his designs at museum galas, as well as Hollywood fashion types like Mandy Moore, Lydia Hearst and Jessica Joffe, who were at the dinner, sporting his jewelry and clothing. Next up for Obando is a collaboration with the Wear LACMA program.
