The Eddie Borgo collection is a study in traditions: American costume jewelry, the history of rock and roll, and the heritage of New York City. Eddie brings new energy and a modern point of view to these established themes, fusing high end and street in every piece he creates. Starting in 2002, Eddie began to create one-of-a-kind pieces for stylists such a Tabitha SImmons, Camilla Nickerson, and Patti Wilson. In the summer of 2008, Eddie was asked to create the jewelry for Phillip Lim's Spring '09 show, at which time he launched his namesake collection. In 2010, Eddie was awarded runner-up in the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund. In 2011, Eddie won the CFDA Swarovski Award for innovation in accessory design.
