Inauguration of the 21st Edition of Designer Christmas Trees

Marie-Christiane Marek and the Montaigne Committee, with the presence of Marie-Ange Casta and Cyril Benzaquen (triple champion of Kickboxing & Thai Boxing), inaugurated the 21st edition of designer Christmas Trees, by launching the illuminations of the famous avenue and unveiling the exhibition of works imagined by 31 designers, which will be auctioned to benefit the fight against cancer.Once again fashion is mobilized with generosity and creativity !Interviews :Marie-Christiane MarekIt’s true that the world of fashion and luxury gives the impression that they are in their own little bubbles and that they are an interested generosity, but this is not the case because, for us, the designer’s Christmas tree association, it’s a truly a pure generosity, its doing something for a charitable cause. It’s the 21st edition, some have been doing it for 21 years, like Jean Paul Gaultier, Jean Carles de Castelbajac, so to mobilize them every year is a bit difficult at the same time they do it out of loyalty, and then we have a lot of new artists because we still open Christmas trees to artists, more or less known, but who have a true talent for design.Eymeric FrançoisIt’s a real dress, and it’s a dress which is 12 years old and it was a wedding dress of my muse, so it was white at the time and she was my first model and this dress had a magnificent life so we tried to give it a pretty end. Jean-Claude JitroisI wanted to make a tower of Babel that everyone remembered, you know this famous tower of Babel which disappeared and I wanted to make it reappear with a bit of leather and a lot of Swarovski. Hubert BarrèreAll the generations has participated and it is a collective work, anyway with us when we work it is collective, it is corral, I am the Artistic Director but I am like a conductor , I have soloists around me who can make beautiful partitions alone but together we make a symphony, it's not bad.(Music free : Bandit & Nikit)
