Our Team

The Family Behind La Vogue Vintage

Our team and family of La Vogue Vintage, Calgary, Canada believe that buying and investing in jewellery and vintage wares should be a pleasurable experience. Each of us in their own right has strived to improve their skills and knowledge over the years to ensure our customers feel confident and relaxed when embarking on a purchase or the repair and restoration journey. 

We at La Vogue Vintage consist of Geoff Saunders, the jeweler, gemologist, gold and silversmith. Corinne Saunders, the pearl and bead restringer, the designer and the creative eye when it comes to show displays. Erica Jago, Geoff and Corinne's daughter is the marketer and creative flair. Finally Mitch Jago, Erica's husband is the voice of reason and the sound board in the family.

The Designer, Corinne Saunders

 

 

Corinne Saunders 

Corinne began her antique jewellery career whilst still a student at University College, London by working in an antique jewellery shop in the Burlington Arcade. Having married into the jewellery trade it was a natural progression to join Geoff in his business. By initially sharing premises with Geoff, Corinne could indulge her love of Antiques. After a few years she opened her own antique shop where she dealt not only in jewellery but also furniture, porcelain and glass.

The Creative Flair, Erica Jago

 

 

Erica Jago 

 

Erica spent many a weekend and holiday working in Geoff and Corinne's various shops, learning the art of selling, design, interior design, marketing and buying. She obtained a degree in history at the Witwatersrand University, Johannesburg, but decided she needed to make her mark outside of the family business. Having spent 16 years in the marketing and public relations world of tourism, Erica went back to her first love and set about creating La Vogue Vintage in Canada in 2014.
