  • ABOUT FULCO DI VERDURA

     

    Born into Sicilian aristocracy in 1898, Verdura’s founder, Duke Fulco di Verdura, began his extraordinary career in Paris as a designer for Coco Chanel. After eight years with Chanel where he, most notably, created the Maltese Cross cuffs that became his signature, Verdura followed his passion for design to America in 1934. With a Hollywood connection through friend and client Diana Vreeland, Verdura designed colorful jewels for stars of the era including Greta Garbo, Joan Crawford and Marlene Dietrich. In 1939, he settled in New York where he set up shop on Fifth Avenue with the backing of his good friends Cole Porter and Vincent Astor, He soon established himself as a boldly innovative designer, admired to this day by the Who’s Who of Hollywood, high society, and style-makers worldwide.
