Maya Brenner's 20th Anniversary
On Wednesday, June 5th, jewelry darling Maya Brenner celebrated her cult brand’s 20th Anniversary at the chic boutique Arts District Firehouse Hotel. Among the guestlist were a number of actresses, such as Busy Philipps, Constance Zimmer, and Monet Mazur, several stylists (Wendi & Nicole Ferreira, Nicole Chavez, and Elle Strauss), and designer Clare Vivier.
Brenner’s work first caught the public’s attention over twenty years ago, while the jeweler was still creating pieces out of her studio apartment and working full-time as a social worker. She then rose to prominence thanks in part to major collaborations with designers like Vivier. Two decades later, her collections boast a slew of celebrity admirers.
Those invited to the anniversary festivities were able to indulge in a number of event-specific activities, including a braid bar and glam by Striiike, nail art by Olive & June, massages from Squeeze, a DIY fresh flower necklace station and gifting suites from Maya Brenner x Mark & Graham, Shashi rainbow bracelets, Maya Brenner x Stella & Dot necklaces and prints from Maya's Power Mama collaboration with Society6. All gifts and activities provided were meant to speak to the inspirations that have shaped Brenner’s career.
