BUSINESS OF ACCESSORIES: The Council of Fashion Designers of America is hosting a forum with Circa, the reseller of fine jewelry, this morning at New York’s Andaz Hotel on business development in the jewelry and accessories industry. The panel, which will include Circa chief executive officer Chris Del Gatto, Mark Emanuel co-owner David Webb, Filipa Fino and Roberto Coin SpA ceo Peter Webster, is titled “Corporate Culture: Brand Identity and Managing Growth.”

The program’s mission is to help jewelry designers grow their businesses domestically and abroad.

The CFDA has invited more than 30 designers, including Dean Harris, Simon Alcantara, Stephen Dweck, Waris Ahluwalia, Monique Péan and Kara Ross.
