What We Do


A collaboration between Ylang 23 and Trendseeder

THENEXTNOW is a partnership between designer jewelry retailer Ylang 23 and fashion incubator Trendseeder. We are discovering and cultivating the next generation of jewelry designers through our events.

 Our mission is to formalize the mentorship that has been happening for decades between Ylang 23's founders, jewelry buyers, sales team, and emerging designers.

THENEXTNOW is not just a springboard for its competition's winners but also a growing network for emerging designers to be able to communicate with one another about common challenges associated with company growth. 

If you are interested in networking with your peers and learning more about how to thrive in the designer jewelry market, THENEXTNOW is for you.
