Behind every picture, there's a story. And behind every dress, there are a heck of a lot of photos. So said Christian Lacroix at a press conference Wednesday in Paris to unveil the program for the Rencontres D'Arles photography festival he's curating.

PHOTO OP: Behind every picture, there's a story. And behind every dress, there are a heck of a lot of photos. So said Christian Lacroix at a press conference Wednesday in Paris to unveil the program for the Rencontres D'Arles photography festival he's curating. It will run July 8 to Sept. 14 and boasts plenty of attractions for the fashion crowd. These include a history of video fashion, runway images by Guy Marineau and behind-the-scenes Polaroids and inspiration collages from assorted Lacroix collections. The sprawling festival will also feature photography by the likes of Richard Avedon, Paolo Roversi, Peter Lindbergh and Guido Mocafico.

OPERA NIGHT: Twenty designs by the late Gianfranco Ferré will line the stairs of Paris' Palais Garnier on Sunday night, as part of an homage organized by the city of Milan. The display is part of an event held to promote the city's bid, up against the city of Izmir in Turkey, to host Expo 2015, geared to sustainable development for food. The winning candidate will be revealed in Paris on Monday. Giambattista Valli and Stefano Pilati are said to be among designers invited to the event that will also feature a live concert by Italian blues-rock star Elisa.

T FOR TONIC: Tonic, the socially and environmentally conscious label, has turned to Luella Bartley for a charitable endeavor. London-based Bartley created four T-shirts as part of Tonic's "Every T Counts" initiative, where each sale benefits the cause its design was inspired by. "I love how the proceeds from the T-shirts go to all sorts of different causes, from helping kids in Colombia with dental care to protecting coral reef in the Pacific," Bartley said. Thirty percent of each $45 cotton-bamboo blend T-shirt sale will benefit one of four organizations. Bartley's Robin Tee design, for instance, will benefit the Alive & Kicking UK organization, with each sale resulting in one soccer ball given to school children in Kenya. The Stag Tee design is in partnership with the Friends of Paradis des Indiens program, with each sale giving a pair of sneakers to a student in Abricots, Haiti. The Pagan Sun Tee, meanwhile, is slated for SaveNature.org, and each shirt will contribute toward the protection of an endangered coral reef in the Pacific Ocean. And each Scary Douglas Tee sale, in partnership with the Global Fund for Children, will help give two children in Colombia one year of dental care.
