Established in 2012 with the support of the Maison Van Cleef & Arpels, the aim of L’École Van Cleef & Arpels, is to share the jewelry culture to a large and varied audience, both in France and abroad. Through offering an a la carte program of courses, talks and exhibitions, accessible to everyone with no pre-requisites, L’École welcomes the public to learn about the savoir faire of jewelry-making techniques, the world of precious stones, and the art history of jewelry.

Every year, L’École travels to different destinations to meet its students and offer them, in their country, a complete set of courses, talks and exhibitions. Following a first trip in 2017, L’École returns to Dubaï.

After a first exhibition at L’École in Paris in 2018, the Precious Art Deco Objects exhibition comes back to Dubai from March 29 to April 13, 2019. L’École Van Cleef & Arpels presents a selection of art objects from a remarkable collection of the Prince and Princess Sadruddin Aga Khan.

The precious boxes that make up that collection were amassed for his wife, the Princess Catherine Aleya Beriketti, and represent incredible masterpieces of inventiveness, creativity, fantasy, skills and technical prowess.

These precious objects, whose craftsmanship was as important as their function, were specially designed for the first wave of ‘liberated’ women in the 1920s: women who enjoyed going out, applied make-up in public, and kept track of their numerous social engagements with a watch or a clock.

Yakymour, home of Begum Om Habibeh Aga Khan, thè place in the mid 50's 'till the late 80's, where fashion, art, beauty and love meet each other, from all over the world.... Playing as a child in the garden of Yakymour was a happy, innocent time, thanx to ‘Grandma’ Yaky and to Sadruddin, where I could be fully myself and forget ‘the bad things’, and get some strenght. The Last 30 years working as cosmetologist and as a make-up artist for television, theatre, film, fotoshoots, fashion shows, celebrities and individuals gave me a trunk full of experience. My work brought me all over the world and had photoshoot's on location in the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, France, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, India a.o. At this Blog you will find many reviews of cosmetics, fashion, art, and everything beautiful, as an ode to Begum Om Habibeh 'Yaky' Aga Khan, and named after the place where 'everything' was beautiful: Yakymour. You will find here all the in and outs about skincare, perfums, and make-up, the do's and don'ts, the why's and how's.... The stories behind, and some great interviews... So when you have any question.... please ask. Come on in.... feel yourself at home at Yakymour! Jean Amr P.S. My apologies for future grammatical errors. English is not my mother language :)
