“The inspiration of my collection infuses Classic, Trendy, Street and Edgy themes and designs that come from the influences that culture has played in my life. Having been exposed to many different cultures and ethnicities, I’ve come to appreciate, embrace, respect, and value the richness of a variety of cultures,” said Christopher Augmon. “Along with these cultural influences is my passion as a designer”.
“My18k Fine Jewelry Collection is inspired and dedicated to all youth, in underserved communities from around the world as the 18 reminds me of youth and 5% of all my sales go to Chicago Youth Programs. I have volunteered serving youth in underserved communities for more than 25 years, thus the creation of my sale line of my company “Fashion that Give Back”; also inspires other to “give back”. My 18k Fine Jewelry collection is very wearable, minimalist while delivering high quality, fashion, style and some extraordinary statement pieces. i.e. My 18k Fine Jewelry Collection comes in Fine jewelry ear rings, necklaces bangles, bracelets are literally 18 Karat Gold with my CA initial on the K”.
Minimalism, tribal, exotic, and statement designs are my muse. However, I want my clients to wear my designs, not to have my designs wear my clients. Combined, they are the sources of my ideas and my ability to create exciting, new looks in fine jewelry and handbags that fulfill consumers’ needs for uniqueness, style, edge, individuality, function, and timeless fashion designs. I also take inspirations from fashion designs during the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. When clients wear my designs I want women to feel and look feminine and men masculine. My designs are wearable, unintentional fashion pieces that articulate trend and style.
CA Christopher Augmon Fine Jewelry Collection is inspired by the City of Chicago and Global Cities from around the world. The collection brings together unique styles of culturally diverse and authentic Chicago neighborhoods, landmarks, and music. The vibrant culture of Chicago is expressed through the collection’s artistic and eloquently composed fine jewelry items available in 18 Karat Yellow, White, and Rose Gold, with a variety of gems and diamonds to choose from.
Christopher Augmon has also modeled with various companies. These include Bloomingdale, Ralph Lauren, The Jones Store Company, Sears, and Hallmark Cards. Because of these experiences, Christopher Augmon is familiar with the fashion industry and trends. Most importantly is his understanding of the consumers’ desire for “classically unique” distinctive looks, especially when it comes to handbags.
“I started passionately designing leather apparel in 2008. I decided to focus on high-end luxury designer handbags for women and men three years ago, fine jewelry four years ago with Fine Jewelry Line of wedding bands, in gold, platinum, diamond jewelry bearing my logo “CA”.
I took costing classes at the Apparel Industry Board Inc., but basically (with a lot of hard work) learned handbag and fine jewelry designing “organically” by taking several trips to New York City, submerging myself with New York and fine jewelry and handbag contractors and seeing women and men, especially in the Midwest, wanting great quality, unique, fashionable designs that could be worn in all seasons and for multiple occasions. I also networked, researched and learned handbag leather, textile, metals, gems, diamonds and plating hardware applications from Los Angeles, China, India and Italy.
