CONTEMPORARY DESIGNER SHOWCASE
The GemGeneve show also featured the Contemporary Designer Showcase, conceived by Faerber and Totah, and curated by jewellery historian, journalist and author, Vivienne Becker, for Vivarium, a new, authoritative jewellery platform that brings jewels and their stories, both past and present, to life. The Showcase had a specially designed conceptual space at the heart of the exhibition, emphasising the individuality of each designer and creative vision. “It is important for us to highlight emerging talent and explain how the new generation of designers is evolving. We would like GemGenève to become not only a vibrant trading place, but also an educational experience, a place where, each year, people come to discover new talent, new stories and undiscovered treasures,” noted Faerber’s daughter, Ida.
