AN ORIGINAL IDEA IN SUPPORT OF BREAST CANCER RESEARCH
Imagined in Paris 20 years ago, the concept consists in inviting famous designers from the worlds of fashion, design, architecture and contemporary art to re-interpret their vision of the Christmas tree.
The unique pieces of art create for that special occasion are presented to the public and to the press prior to be auctioned during a high-level gala dinner. All proceeds are supporting breast cancer research.
