Nov 6 2013

Pretty much anybody who lives in Knoxville, Tennessee has heard of Diana Warner….hometown girl turned entrepreneur with an uber-successful line of custom designed jewelry and a fancy New York boutique that bears her name.

Us locals have coveted her wares from afar, shopped them online and in other area retail establishments. But now Knoxville’s fashionistas are buzzing because our hometown southern girl has opened a brand new boutique right here in K-Town!

I popped in on Diana in her new shop the morning of opening day and let me tell you, it’s fabulous! Maybe I’m partial because she once created a custom “southern belle” necklace for a giveaway on my blog. Maybe I just love to see someone follow her passion and watch it come to life. I just can’t say enough good things about Diana Warner.

If you happen to find yourself in New York or Knoxville, you can visit one of Diana’s eponymous boutiques. Otherwise, her designs are sold in a variety of other fine retail shops around the country.
