Celebrity guests including Princess Charlene of Monaco, Catherine Deneuve, Cherie Chung and Alexandra Shulman came together last night at the home of Matisse, Renoir & Degas to celebrate Ralph Lauren’s pledge to restore the elite Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, one of the world’s oldest, most influential, and beautiful art schools.
To mark the patron sponsorship, the fashion brand hosted a special presentation of the Ralph Lauren Fall 2013 Collection, the first time the designer has showcased outside of the US. The evening also featured a an exclusive gala dinner in the picturesque courtyard within L’Ecole des Beaux-Arts.
Ralph Lauren has a rich connection with French heritage and a long-standing commitment to philanthropy with a love of Paris.
The restoration project will see Ralph Lauren dedicate funding for a two-year project that will oversee the restoration and modernisation of the listed building, as part of a broader Beaux-Arts preservation campaign.
