Shannon Davenport and Julia Wilson have been friends ever since meeting in college on the beaches of San Diego. Having found theweather intolerable, the pair moved to New York City to take the fashion industry by storm and Fortune Favors The Brave was born shortly thereafter in their Brooklyn loft. Julia cut her teeth at esteemed accessories brand Loeffler Randall while Shannon’s time as an editor at a leading trend forecasting firm has given her a firm sense of the direction of the industry. Their new line is the realization of their dream to build their own brand valuing both individuality and independence.
Fortune Favors The Brave’s collections are inspired by a rugged Americana and Western sensibility mixed with a touch of 1970s-era glamour. The jewelry represents a bold and modern reinterpretation of these classic themes, amped up with comtemporary proportions for a wearable take on storied, ethereal metalworking techniques.
