The 16th Les Sapins de Noël des Créateurs, an exhibition of Christmas Trees designed by top French Fashion Designers, Architects, Photographers, Interior Designers and other creative personalities, just took place at the Hotel Salomon de Rothschild in Paris.
This is my third year in a row blogging about this charitable event and this year the proceeds from the auction of the trees designed by the likes of Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Stella McCartney and Jean Paul Gaultier will benefit the Association pour la Vie-Espoir contre le Cancer (A.V.E.C.), a children’s cancer charity.
