THE DESIGNER

MIRPURI is the creation of London-based independent designer Johnny Mirpuri.Tipped as a promising new design talent, Johnny was selected as part of the British Jewellers' Association-supported KickStart initiative, to exhibit MIRPURI's debut collections at International Jewellery London 2011.

 

Discovering that his childhood interest in things creative had been rekindled whilst making several works of art for his home, Johnny turned his back on a 20 year City banking career at the end of 2008 to dive into the fascinating world of jewellery design. He went on to complete a broad programme of bench & design-based courses at the Holts Academy of Jewellery and Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design, where he learnt both traditional and computer-aided design and manufacturing techniques.

 

Born of Indian parentage in West Africa, Johnny moved with his family to settle in the UK at the age of  nine. This culturally diverse upbringing ignited in him a passion for travel from an early age, which has taken him to over 25 countries across the world. Each of these journeys and the exposure that they provided to differing landscapes, new customs, fresh architectural ideas and cosmopolitan lifestyles, have played a part in shaping Johnny's own sense of personal as well as design style.
