50 Years New in Asia

50 Years New in Asia: In Conversation with Cindy Chao

With the mind of an architect, and hands of a sculptor, the magic of Cindy Chao’s contemporary high jewellery creations often find inspiration in the butterfly, a beautiful and fragile creature of nature symbolising femininity and metamorphosis, echoing Chao’s own journey to becoming one of the world’s most iconic jewellery designers.

On the occasion of commemorating International Women’s Day, the celebrated Taiwanese jewellery designer sits down in conversation with Wendy Lin, Sotheby’s Chairman, Asia, to talk about the path to success as a designer and a woman in the industry. She speaks about the challenges of balancing motherhood with the pursuits of a career running her own company, and shares earnest advice for women of the next generation.
