Charles-Henri Bourgeois died on Tuesday 14 June at the age of 36, following an accidental fall during a mountain excursion, an activity he loved practising.

Younger son of Marie-Christine and Jean-Yves Bourgeois (the co-founder of the Luxe Pack and “MakeUp in” trade shows, and the creator of the Formes de Luxe magazine, among other achievements), Charles-Henri Bourgeois had participated, among others, in the development of the “MakeUp in” trade shows worldwide.

The father of a 5-year-old boy, he had taken another path four years ago by moving to Normandy. Passionate about nature and animals, this new course of life fitted him perfectly.

Although he was an accomplished sportsman, fate decided otherwise. Charles-Henri was courageous, determined, generous, with tremendous empathy and great benevolence to others.
