Martha Stewart to Present Award to Honoree

 

Monday, June 4, 2018

 

Cocktails at 7pm

FIAF, Le Skyroom  22 East 60th Street, NYC

 

Dinner at 8pm

Le Bilboquet  20 East 60th Street, NYC

 

 

New York, NY,  - The French Institute Alliance Fran็aise (FIAF) will present its fifth annual Art de Vivre Award to Fr้d้ric Fekkai, co-founder and CEO of Bastide and founder of Fekkai, on Monday, June 4. The evening will commence with a cocktail reception at 7pm in FIAF’s Le Skyroom, and continue at 8pm with a dinner at the elegant French restaurant Le Bilboquet. Martha Stewart will present the award to the honoree.

 

For more than three decades, Fr้d้ric Fekkai has shaped the global beauty landscape. In 1989, Fr้d้ric opened the luxury salon and day spa atop Bergdorf Goodman, which drew in celebrity clientele and led to the opening of seven salons. In 1994, Fr้d้ric transformed hair care through the launch of his award-winning collection, Fekkai.

 

After 20 years at the helm of Fekkai, Fr้d้ric has launched Bastide, a house of beauty and well-being, inspired by his hometown, Aix-en-Provence. In partnership with his wife and co-founder, Shirin von Wulffen, Fr้d้ric celebrates Provence’s artisans and ingredients with locally made, non-toxic beauty products. Bastide opened its flagship boutique in Aix-en-Provence in June 2017 and now is available in wholesale and ecommerce throughout France, US, Canada, and Australia. In 2010, Fr้d้ric was accorded the Chevalier de l’Ordre National du M้rite, the French National Order of Merit awarded by the president of France to recognize distinguished achievements. 

 

FIAF president Marie-Monique Steckel said: “With his southern French charm and incredible eye for beauty, Fr้d้ric Fekkai arrived in New York and took America by storm. Introducing a natural, sexy approach to hairstyles and sumptuous, coveted products, Fr้d้ric has transformed the world of beauty. We are thrilled to honor Fr้d้ric as he, together with his wife Shirin, launches Bastide, their exquisite new label.”

 

The 2018 Art de Vivre Award Event Committee includes Thomas Ajamie, Amanda and Zack BaconLaurel Barrack, Denise and Frank Brosens, Veronica Bulgari and Stephan HaimoSamantha and Nabil ChartouniFran็ois ChโteauClo and Charles S.

The French Institute Alliance Fran็aise (FIAF) would like to thank Lalique and James Mun, President & CEO of Lalique North America, for their very kind and generous donation of one Mossi vase to be presented to the evening’s honoree as his award. The kaleidoscopic effect of the Mossi Vase is both a stroke of creative genius and a feat of technical mastery. Ren้ Lalique designed this iconic piece in 1933. His original choice of material was plain glass, which the company has transformed into the vibrant intensity of crystal. A genuine interior design accessory of modernity, the Mossi plays on the contrast between the brilliance of its cabochons and the frosting of its base.
