MOUSE CLUB: John Galliano might never be caught on the scream rides at Euro Disney, but the theme park near Paris has tapped him and other designers for a Nov. 30 charity auction marking its 10th anniversary. Galliano created a fantasy sketch of a Christian Dior outfit suitable for a 10-year-old princess, as have Sonia Rykiel, Thierry Mugler, Sybilla, Jean Charles de Castelbajac and others. Some items, including shoes by Christian Louboutin and the Mugler dress, will be produced and sold in support of "The Child’s Voice," a federation of 50 children’s charities. Also up for grabs are costumes worn in Disney parades, original drawings and other collectibles.
CHEZ LOULOU: Speculation is heating up in Paris that a vacant retail space near picturesque Place du Palais Bourbon will soon be taken up by Loulou de la Falaise for her new fashion venture: a boutique selling classic clothes and accessories. The location in question, at 7 Rue de Bourgonge across from the famous florist Moulié, was formerly a Lina’s sandwich shop. De la Falaise, the famous Yves Saint Laurent muse and accessory designer, was vacationing Monday and could not be reached for comment. But sources said her venture has solid backing, including that of the retired couturier himself and his business partner, Pierre Bergé, and Eric de Rothschild.
