On September 13, at the initiative of Anna Peter, Caroline Moulin, Catherine Petit, Richard Bliah, Sabine Chabbert, Sylvie Borin and Wouter Wiels, insiders of the cosmetics industry are invited to attend a charity event dedicated to “beauty in the Japanese.” The cocktail and diner will be held in the “Maison 8”, the Japanese-style house designed by Kenzo Takada in central Paris.
Proceeds of the event will be donated to the Fondation de Fère, which works through its "100 maisons pour 100 familles” project to the reconstruction of new houses for those affected by the tsunami in the Sendai area.
Participants will be offered to learn the secrets of famous Japanese rituals, such as the tea ceremony, in the pavilion dedicated to this purpose, or the Ikebana, under the artistic direction of Rumiko Maneko, from the Ikenobo school. Large format photographs by Roberto Giostra will be on display in the house and will be auctioned later in the evening. Around 09.00 pm, Richard Bliah, a French architect living in Japan, who started the “100 maisons pour 100 familles” project will present it in the details.
Admission fee to the event is 150 euros. A personal or professional tax deduction is possible under certain conditions. Over 130 people have already confirmed their participation. Registration is available online on the website of the “100 maisons pour 100 familles” project.
