Marion not involved with ‘Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque’
As we previously reported Marion was supposed to provide a design for the benefit of Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque – the organisation helping children from all backgrounds getting much needed heart surgery. However, she was very sad to cancel her involvement as her contract to Dior doesn’t allow her to lend her name to another label (the project also involves fashion house Maje). In her place, Guillaume Canet will sign a piece that will be auctioned off at the end of the planned exhibition.

Marion designs for ‘Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque’
A story of the heart you don’t come across often; One which unites Judith Milgrom, creator of Maje (fashion label) and Professeur Leca’s society Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque.
A heartbeat for a just cause:
Caring for children with born cardiac deformity no matter where they come from and giving them the chance to get surgery no matter the cost.
Artists good-heartedly joining the cause by offering their original works of art.
From October 21 until November 21, 2009 Maje “puts heart” to the matter and organizes an exhibition-sale at the Bon Marché Rive Gauche for all the original works of the invited designers (Marion Cotillard, Vanessa Paradis, Inès de la Fressange, Guillaume Canet, Ariel Wizman, Garance Doré, André, Kuntzel & Deygas, Marco Zanusso Jr, Sam Baron, Tania Bruno-Rosso, Nadège Winter, Mademoiselle Agnès…) as well as an exclusive sale of foulards made from their designs later on.
If your heart tells you to buy one of those foulards, you can find them in store (Maje boutique) as of November 12. All benefits from the sale will fully go to Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque – so that the children can live again, with a full heart.
According to official information sent to Marion Cotillard Web, Marion’s design will be shown during the exhibition (October 21 – November 21) and sold afterwards for the benefit of the society – however she’s in no way affiliated with Maje nor will her design be integrated into the range of foulards.
