Here in Denver, 4/20 weekend caused quite the buzz and with hundreds of happenings around town – it was honestly all quite a blur. While it was the biggest celebration in the state to date, I didn’t even attempt to cover festival fashion at a mile high (i.e. a standard “stoner style” slideshow). As promised when I started this column in January, I’m here to share the latest on who is making marijuana look good, and Los Angeles born, bred and currently based jewelry designer Jacquie Aiche is a prime example.
Since officially launching her line in 2005, the pot leaf has always been a staple for Aiche and has seen a spike in popularity over the past few years with the growth of medical and recreational marijuana. The fact that Rihanna, Diane Kruger, Kelly Oxford, Kate Mara, Alessandra Ambrosio and Miley Cryrus are just a few of the celebrity clients who drape themselves in her jewels doesn’t hurt either.
“What’s happening with the marijuana movement -- it really is the green rush. I’ve been around pot culture my entire life and am an avid supporter of legalization,” says Aiche, 38. “I’m a product of LA in the ’80s -- I was constantly surrounded by it with my parents and their friends.”
