Les Sapins de Noël des Créateurs: When fashion and Christmas merge together

One thing that cannot go unnoticed for Christmas, aside from Santa Claus and gifts, is the Christmas tree. To celebrate the spirit of holiday season, every year since 1995, “Les Sapins de Noël des Créateurs” has been held as an event where famous fashion houses and skilled artists gather to show their unique idea of a Christmas tree.

The event was first held in Paris by Marie-Christiane Marek, a fashion journalist and TV producer. It was quickly recognised and joined by many well-known names such as Dior, Guerlain and Chanel. It is worth pointing out that these Christmas trees will be auctioned for charity purposes and the money raised will be donated to a non-profit organization. The last edition of “Les Sapins de Noël des Créateurs” raised 86,000 € for Foundation Avec, an organization fighting cancer.
