PARIS — Marionnaud donated 100,000 euros, or $138,894 at current exchange, on Thursday to Cosmetic Executive Women France’s beauty centers, which gives free beauty treatments to hospitalized women and men.
The sum was raised by the perfumery chain selling 20,000 stuffed teddy bears dressed by Lanvin during a Valentine’s Day operation. One quarter of the people buying the bears had purchased them in the past through the yearly event.
The sum allows for 3,000 treatments of patients per year and insures the functioning of the two treatment rooms five days a week, according to Françoise Montenay, president of CEW France’s beauty centers Montenay and Eileen Yeo, managing director of Marionnaud France, also presented the results of an operation called “Plus belle avec le CEW” (or More beautiful with CEW), which this year involved 40 volunteer beauty counselors being trained by CEW members and a psychologist to advise people in-store with cancer.

“There’s a huge gap between the old way of doing things and today. It takes the youth to help evolve that. You have to count on the kids today to help lead you into the future. A lot of these retailers are stuck in the past. Communication is the biggest thing,” said @ronniefieg of @kith on the youth’s role in retail. On Monday night, Jeff Staple moderated a keynote session with Fieg and @syresmith at Assembly - a series of workshops, talks and keynotes addressing topics or issues in the apparel industry.
