SHANGHAI— The Vision & Virtuosity exhibit opened at Shanghai’s Fosun Foundation, a non-profit arts center located in the city’s bustling Bund waterfront district, heralding Tiffany’s 180th Anniversary.

Andrea Favoretto Rubelli was on hand for the festivities. Rubelli/Donghia designed all of the standard and custom fabrics, accessorizing the exhibition, which features the famous 128.54-carat-yellow diamond. It was last worn by Lady Gaga at the Academy Awards in February. 

Tiffany continues to build stores in China but its business with Chinese tourists in the USA is down 25 percent due to the tariff wars.

Meanwhile, Donghia, Rubelli’s wholesale contract and residential division in the USA, is undergoing a total reorganization, according to Andrea.  His brother, Nicolo, has been running the business since January.

“The design department of Donghia has not disappeared but is being reorganized, also with possible synergies with Rubelli, who as you know,  has very strong textile development capabilities. Nicolò is supervising all of our five brands,” Andrea says.

Nicolo agrees.

“We are indeed in the process of reorganizing Donghia in order to better benefit from the many opportunities offered by our market,” Nicolò says. “At due time I will be happy to answer to all of your questions.”
