Nak Armstrong Bio

Designer Nak Armstrong

NAK ARMSTRONG

Nak Armstrong’s designs reveal the flow between ancient and modern, precious and raw, shadow and light, mystery and brilliance. The Austin, Texas-based designer's love of textile design and architecture becomes tangible through uniquely crafted pieces that appear to be mosaics of raw gems or tapestries woven of precious metals.

Recognized for his innovative metalworking techniques and an experimental aesthetic that is complex yet classical, Nak Armstrong has been a leading designer of heritage jewelry since the 1990s. He debuted his eponymous collection in 2011.

Armstrong co-founded Anthony Nak in 1998 which won numerous honors including the Fashion Guild International Rising Star award, the Couture International award for platinum, and the distinguished Swarovski Perry Ellis award for new talent in the accessory design category from the CFDA.

The Nak Armstrong brand remains true to Armstrong’s strong aesthetic and offers new techniques that challenge the relationship between metalwork and precious stones.
