Brief Summary

My name is Anna Raimondo and for as long as I can remember, I have had an eye for detail and all things beautiful. After graduating with Honours in Jewellery Design and Gemmology from Stellenbosch University in Cape Town, I was fortunate to receive the prestigious scholarship to complete a Master of Design in Milan, Italy, at the Richemont Group’s Creative Academy. It was at this academy that I gained invaluable skills on the creative process, accessory design, marketing and the world of luxury.

After finishing my studies at the Creative Academy, I then completed an intense three-month internship as a designer for the world-renowned fashion brand Chloe, working in their leather department in Milan. Thereafter, I spent the next two years working and travelling in and around the UK and Australia.

In 2010 I returned home to Cape Town and launched SMITH.
