Mélange 2013 - THE CELEBRATION OF THE YEAR
Guests have traveled from Croatia, Australia, Brazil and more to attend this annual event in San Francisco, and this year’s party will take place on October 19, 2013 at Temple SF. A dazzling blend of fashion, dance, music and theatre, Mélange is an international celebration of diversity in San Francisco.
In partnership with the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), this extravaganza only happens once a year and is not to be missed by any arts or fashion enthusiast!
For each ticket purchased for Mélange 2013, we will also be providing one meal for Nourish the Children (NTC) by Nu Skin as part of our community outreach. This noble organization has provided 300 million meals worldwide, and we are excited to be partnering with Nourish the Children as our official community partner and Nu Skin as our official skin care partner.
Three Jean Paul Gaultier looks will be featured on the catwalk of Mélange 2013; Guila Kessous, Jean Paul Gaultier’s Creative Director and Board Member for Mélange, will be flying from Paris to attend Mélange 2013. These looks by Jean Paul Gaultier will be featured alongside local Bay Area designers, such as Topher Adam, international designers, including Varignia Garcia from Peru, and celebrity designers, such as Punk Kouture, who designed for Nicki Minaj and Mick Jagger. Official partners for Mélange 2013 include 7x7 Magazine and the historic AsiaSF.
We will also be showcasing the world premiere of the new hand bag of the famous French luxury brand Le Tanneur; this hand bag, designed by Guila Kessous, was presented to Michelle Obama as a gift from the first lady of France during her visit to the country. Luxury haute couture brand Eric Tibusch, famous French designer of Alain Delon, will also be showcasing two looks on the runway. These couture looks will be modeled by the famous Aurelia Khazan, who is flying from France to attend this event. Aurelia will also be showcasing some of her fabulous music at the event.
By uniting such diverse partners ranging from fashion pioneers (Jean Paul Gaultier) to San Francisco’s famous transgender bar (AsiaSF) to international organizations (UNESCO), Mélange 2013 is truly a San Francisco celebration of diversity!
