Toni Patrizio (AKA Toni P)
Toni spent the early part of her career in New York in the fashion industry holding positions of Buyer, Merchandiser, Designer, Fashion Director and since moving to Hong Kong in 1994, was Managing Director of the HK office of a major US designer brand, specializing in fabric sourcing and design. With her ability to travel the world, she became increasingly obsessed with jewelry that depicted a significant cultural influence or true art form.
In 1999, she decided to start her own company, Cultures by Toni P Ltd, which combines her two greatest passions – jewelry and travel. Toni has always loved exploring other countries and cultures and has collected many “treasures” over the years. Her own collection inspired her to create a line of jewelry that combines Asian artifacts with a New Age contemporary twist. Universal and multi-functional, her collections offer versatile options for limitless wearability. Texture and dimension are significant characteristics and exemplify the artistry of Asian cultures.
Since the inception of her company she has worked with or designed for companies such as Lane Crawford (HK), Paul Costelloe (UK/Ireland), Lilly Pulitzer (USA), Geary’s Beverly Hills (USA), SAKS Fifth Avenue (USA), MAC Cosmetics, Metropolitan Museum of Art and numerous Five Star and Boutique Hotels around the world.
