The HOTEL Le MEURICE in Paris is part of the DORCHESTER Collection [as is the Beverly Hills Hotel in California]. It is owned by Sultan Hassanl Bolkiah and he has instituted a penal code against all GAYS!.
They will be amputated and stoned to death.
Sultan said that GOD gave him guidance to do this.
When I was a designer for a fashion house in Germany………I attended the “Pret-a-Porte” shows in PARIS and always stayed at Le Meurice.……….and I loved the pampering by the staff. BUT, I WILL NEVER STAY THERE AGAIN!
The Russian designer Yulia Yanina just had her show there…….Couture Spring Summer 2014. I hope she will never show there again!
The designers Peter Som and Brian Atwood have already boycotted the Dorchester Hotels.
Francois-Henri Pinault…..the owner of Gucci, Stella McCartney and Alexander Mc Queen has joined the boycott of the Dorchester Collection.
Saint Laurent has declared the Brunei laws are an outrage………and has forbidden any of his employees to stay at Le Meurice. They will NOT be eating in this magnificent dining room!
If you want to sleep in this room it will cost you $1400 per night during one of the fashion shows. It is a huge financial loss for Le Meurice.
This is about HUMAN RIGHTS! No hotel is nice enough for that…..so says Cindi Leive, the editor of GLAMOUR Magazine. BRAVA!
The loss of income for this suite is $3500 a night. But, will the Sultan really care?
Ellen DeGeneres took to twitter to announce her boycott. She will NOT be having cocktails or meals in this gorgous dining room.
I was thinking of having my wedding reception in this lovely “BALL” room. NOT!
BRUNEI has returned to the STONING AGE!
