The 18th Annual Designer Christmas Trees From Les Sapins de Noel des Createurs, Part I.
The non-profit organization, Les Sapins de Noël des Créateurs (The Designers Christmas Trees), has been raising funds with its prestigious charity event for 18 years. Every December, renowned personalities from the world of fashion, design or architecture, bring their talent to offer their unique take on the traditional Christmas tree created in various mediums.
This is my fourth feature on this annual event. I have shared with you many of their previous designer Christmas trees here, here and here.
This year, I have all of the photos from the 18th edition of Les Sapins de Noël des Créateurs, with the exception of three, by the following participants. Images are shown in alphabetical order.

Their vision of the traditional Christmas tree was displayed during a free exhibition, from the 4th to the 8th of December, 10:00 am to 7:00 pm, at the Hôtel Salomon de Rothschild, 11 rue de Berryer, Paris, France. The pieces were then auctioned off on the 9th of December via an on-site and online charity auction and amassed 78,500 euros. The profits will go to la Fondation AVEC, pour la Vie, Espoir contre le Cancer
