For the second consecutive year, the Palais Galliera set the Vogue Paris Foundation Gala. This event is from now on a major of the Haute Couture Fashion Week in Paris.

In 2014, Condé Nast France announced the creation of the Vogue Paris Foundation to support and promote contemporary design. More specifically, the funds raised would go to help the Palais Galliera fashion museum, Musée de la Mode de la Ville de Paris, enrich and preserve its contemporary collections and future public exhibitions.

This year, the second year of the Foundation which took place on July 6 in Palais Galliera, more than €450,000 have been raised, thanks to the generosity of the couture houses and fashion designers. This Vogue Paris initiative has allowed Palais Galliera to enrich its collections with more than 100 pieces of fashion, accessories, photography and illustration.

'I am particularly delighted to find, in this exceptional setting, all the main figures of the Paris fashion scene who have come together once again to support the Musée de la Mode de la Ville de Paris as the keeper of a depository of history that not only designers, but also the photographers and stylists at Vogue Paris add to each season.' —  Emmanuelle Alt, editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris.

'The Palais Galliera is delighted to have the support of the Vogue Paris Foundation for a second year. It has allowed us to acquire a rare and fragile body of contemporary fashion and it is the mission of the museum to preserve this for the future. Thanks to the strength, support and understanding of the Vogue Paris Foundation, we can go further in this mission than ever before.' —  Olivier Saillard, director of the Palais Galliera.
