The beautiful spirit of Christmas

Beginning in 1995, “Les Sapins des Créateurs” has supported charitable organisations by uniting the greatest names in fashion, architecture and design.

Working under the guidance and wisdom of Marie-Christiane Marek- the president of “Les Sapins des Créateurs”, renowned artists and prestigious fashion houses work hard every year to create original works of art which embody the spirit of Christmas.

Generosity comes first The original artworks created for “Les Sapins
des Créateurs” are eventually sold at auction with all the proceeds going to
charity: this gives bidders the opportunity to acquire unique pieces of art and support a great cause. All the money raised at auction is dedicated to
Professor David Khayat’s research into cancer: Professor Khayat chairs cancer research at the Bezet Clinic and is the president of The Paris Charter Against Cancer.

Together, the auction and preceding exhibition will celebrate Italian fashion from the late 1950s through to the early 1980s, a period when Paris no longer had the monopoly on couturiers and their Italian counterparts were coming to the fore.
