The Palais Galliera gives thanks here the generosity of those who contribute with invaluable donations to support the City of Paris Fashion museum.
Palais Galliera's team heartily thanks the following donors and partners who assisted in the reopening of the museum in 2013 :

. Funny Bones, represented by Antoine Jean, Sylvestre Hovart, Éric Pillault and Elisabeth Jean, for the creation of the new graphic identity for the Palais Galliera,

For their support and standing beside Vogue Paris, Palais Galliera would like to thank all the donors and benefactors - houses of haute couture, fashion designers and photographers - who enriched the collections of the museum on the occasion of the first gala of the Vogue Paris Foundation.
Palais Galliera also warmly thanks the Maison Chanel, which wished to associate itself, as an exclusive patron, with the destiny of the museum by supporting the ambitious project of fitting out new exhibition rooms dedicated to the permanent collections. Set up in the museum's underground spaces, covering an area of 670 m², these new spaces will offer the public a place dedicated to the history of fashion, from the 18th century. The project also includes the creation of an educational workshop and a bookstore and a goodies shop. The gallery of collections, which will open at the end of 2019, will be called "Salles Gabrielle Chanel".
Palais Galliera thanks Louis Vuitton Malletier for its generous support for the benefit of its programme of exhibitions 2015-2016.
And finally, our team is also anxious to thank the numerous donors who every year contribute to complete the exceptional heritage of the Palais Galliera.
