MEET THE DESIGNER: WANDERLUSTER

Wanderluster
Rammy Park SHOP ALL
As far as graduation presents go, it’s pretty damn hard to beat the one Rammy Lee Park received from her uncle when she became a newly minted MFA grad in May 2011. “My family has been in the jewelry business for thirty-plus years,”  the Columbia-alum recalls. “And my uncle has always wanted to create a jewelry line.” After a few mishaps finding the right designers, her uncle had an aha! moment: Rammy, who’d made jewelry for herself since grade-school (and the only girl in the family), should head up the new undertaking. She’s got creative juices aplenty, what with a film degree under her belt and all. And Rammy, daunted by the prospect of a film-production job with its 12-hour days, hit the ground running. She spent that summer traipsing across the globe to figure out production, and, from there, she dove into design, drawing on trips she’d taken to Ireland, Istanbul, Iceland, and California’s Death Valley through the years. She’s managed to keep the movie thing going, too, writing and directing on the side, creating video content for her day job, and working the festival circuit year-round—travels that back up her line Wanderluster’s name. “I liked the word wanderlust, but I wanted it to be more about a person—a lifestyle. It’s what I think of myself. I’m always running around, seeking new things.” —<em>jiayi ying</em> <a href="http://wanderlusternewyork.com/">wanderlusternewyork.com</a> READ MORE
