FIAF’s eighth annual Art de Vivre Award will be held on Monday, June 5 and will honor the Chantecaille Family, world-renowned for their botanical skincare and cosmetics brand. Cocktails and an award ceremony in the FIAF Skyroom will be followed by a dinner and live auction at Le Bilboquet. The evening benefits FIAF’s art, cultural, and education programs.
The Chantecaille Family
Sylvie Chantecaille is a beauty industry pioneer, who has been at the forefront of many of the industry’s most innovative moments. In 1998, she launched Chantecaille as a small fragrance house and quickly expanded to a full line of skincare and cosmetics. Sylvie’s vision for Chantecaille was a true labor of love. The Chantecaille family’s dedication to enhancing wellness and consuming passion for quality, purity, and form helped build Chantecaille into a global luxury beauty brand renowned for its botanical formulas and technologically advanced approach. The brand’s deep commitment to animal and environmental conservation began as a shared family passion for animals and the earth. Sylvie’s love for gardening led her to discover the crisis of disappearing Monarch Butterflies and the creation of Chantecaille’s first philanthropy partnership. Since then, the Chantecaille family has helped raise awareness for more than 30 conservation partners.
