FEDORA's 10-Year Anniversary

Looking back on our impact together with Nicolas Bos, President & CEO of Van Cleef & Arpels

On the occasion of our 10-year anniversary, be inspired by an exclusive interview with Nicolas Bos, President and CEO of Van Cleef & Arpels, and Board Member of FEDORA. 

Founded in 1906 at Paris’ Place Vendôme, the High Jewelry Maison Van Cleef & Arpels has remained faithful to a highly distinctive style characterized by creativity, enchantment, artistic sensibility and poetry. Its collections have notably been influenced by dance, with the emblematic ballerina clips born in the 1940s. This interdisciplinary dialogue was reinforced by a decisive encounter with George Balanchine. In 1967 in New York, the well-known choreographer presented the ballet Jewels, inspired by the emeralds, rubies and diamonds he had admired in Van Cleef & Arpels’ Fifth Avenue boutique. Today, these cultural affinities endure in new collaborations between the Maison and the world of dance. 

Since its creation ten years ago, the FEDORA - VAN CLEEF & ARPELS Dance Prize symbolizes the Maison’s constant commitment to creativity and bears witness to its support for choreographic art, by encouraging new talents.  

Since its beginning, the collaboration between FEDORA and Van Cleef & Arpels offers
 a unique way of looking at cultural support. Our approach is to nurture new creations
 in the making that would be coproduced by different institutions and travel internationally.
