Marie Christiane Marek and her Christmas Trees in Paris


My friend Marie Christiane Marek is the woman behind 17 editions of “ Sapins de Noël ” which were put up for auction ( almost € 70,000 were raised ) and a Gala dinner at the Hotel Salomon de Rothschild in Paris. An event in favor to cancer for a charity thanks to the Christmas trees designed by the big names in fashion, beauty, design and architecture .

Jean Paul Gaultier tree was made of a stack of Coca-Cola tins, Chantal Thomass did a white-feathered creation, Lesage a black embroidered “plant” in homage( by Hugo Barriere ) to the late embroidery king François Lesage, Pierre Hermé’s tree was a multicolored macarons … We discover the Christmas ghost vision of Casper neon ( eternal return ) by Jean Charles de Castelbajac ( he has designed robes for Pope John Paul II, dressed stars such as Elton John, Sarah Jessica Parker and Lady Gaga ), Stella McCartney coloured neon tree, the fantastic SM cookies tree by Dean and Dan Caten for Dsquared and the metallic poles by Elie Saab. After filming this part for Glamour TV, I discover that a Christmas tree can be stylish thanks to the words of Suzy Menkes . Merry Christmas
