Lecture (in English) on the global influence of French style

Jeddah has always had its little French world. Events and conferences at the French Consulate have long remained open for French-speaking audiences. However, very rarely does an event come along which mixes the cultural oomph of French with the accessibility of English. One is just round the corner. Art, design, and culture enthusiasts, mark this one in.

Please join PATRICK FREY, Art Director and his son Pierre Frey for a presentation in English entitled

French Style – Global Influence

Discover the origins of some of the most popular, classic French textiles and learn how Patrick Frey interprets them into fabric designs that are used to create today’s beautiful, modern interiors. Pierre Frey has been creating beautiful fabrics for over 75 years. Drawing inspiration from their vast visual archives, the firm is well-known for its eclectic woven and printed textiles.
