About NJI

Our Mission

Established in 2002, NJI is a leading source of knowledge, standards and education
in the art of luxury.

Located in New York and Paris, the non-profit organization, in partnership with Parsons School of Design, conducts courses and global events on the business of luxury in fashion, jewelry, beauty and design. Our goal is to empower the next generation of industry leaders, by connecting our members with top luxury brand executives. Our programs are uniquely designed to provide an interactive, luxury educational experience.

NJI hosts an annual gala ceremony honoring world leaders of arts and culture, at prominent international institutions including Le Louvre, Le Ministere des Affaires l’Etrangeres, The Louvre Abu Dhabi, and The Morgan Library.
