Fash­ion icon’s art pro­ject

India Today - - HOTSHEET -

In an act of artis­tic benev­o­lence, de­signer Ralph Lau­ren will be fund­ing the restora­tion of one of Paris’ famed art in­sti­tu­tions, École National Supérieure des Beaux- Arts. Most of the funds are “des­ig­nated to restore the semi­cir­cu­lar lec­ture theatre at the heart of the school with its 90- foot Raphael- es­que mu­ral by Paul De­laroche.” In a trib­ute to the two- year- old cam­paign to ren­o­vate the in­sti­tu­tion, he is slated to hold a cat­walk show on the school grounds on Oc­to­ber 8. Mark­ing the de­signer’s first- ever Euro­pean show, it will show­case the brand’s au­tumn/ win­ter 2013- 14 womenswear col­lec­tion. The per­fect meet­ing ground for fash­ion and art!
