In the course of Paris Designweek, we’ve joined the Boutique Opening of “L’Atelier Damir Doma” at the Boutique Éphémère of L’Eclaireur. The temporary retail space is both, boutique and art installation imitating the fashion designer’s studio. Selected artworks of Japanese sculptor Hiroyuki Hamada from the private collection of Bodo Vincent Andrin, Founder & Managing Director LIGANOVA, are exhibited there until September 22rd. The amazing works of Hiroyuki Hamada served as main inspiration for the current fall/winter collection 2011/2011 of Damir Doma. This is the first time that pieces from the “LIGAart“ Collection are publicly on display.
Altogether, we’ve had an amazing evening and became acquainted with lots of great people, such as Marketing Director Carlo and Senior Brand Manager Christina from Damir Doma. Thank you, guys, for this inspiring event!
Here you’ll find some more impressions of the opening…
