In aid of this year’s charity partner “Race Against Dementia”, F1 drivers Stoffel Vandoorne, Daniil Kvyat, Esteban Ocon, Pascal Wehrlein, Marcus Ericsson, Charles Leclerc and Marc Gene “swapped their race suits” to hit the runway in Apsley of London and Michael Kors formal wear, as Amber Lounge Monaco’s headline music act, Chris Willis, AKA “The Voice of David Guetta” performed “Would I Lie to you”.

In signature style, Amber Lounge Founder and Monaco-based entrepreneur Sonia Irvine delivered the final flourish, gliding gracefully down the runway, hand in hand with her charming six-year-old daughter, Katie. They were all dressed in Silviya Neri silk, with pieces selected from her latest collection.
