Amber Lounge highlights local designers at trademark fashion show

Despite all the limitations of the health crisis, Amber Lounge has managed to pull off a successful fashion show during this year’s Grand Prix, raising over half a million euros for the Caudwell Children charity.

It was under the iconic glass atrium of the Grimaldi Forum where the Amber Lounge Fashion Show was staged on Friday night, welcoming celebrities, drivers, models and guests for a night of sustainable fashion, fun, food and spectacular lots up for auction.

“What a fantastic evening, I am really proud of how the Amber Lounge Fashion Show was delivered,” said Amber Lounge Founder and CEO Sonia Irvine. “It’s hard to explain the amount of work that has gone into making this event happen, so I just want to thank everyone who has made it possible and to have raised over €500,000 for our charity partner Caudwell Children makes the event a great success.”

The prestigious event, sponsored by the Antropov Foundation, welcomed the likes of Pauline Ducruet, Greg Maffei, Laurent Rossi Jost Capito, John Caudwell, Gareth Wittstock, Adrian Newey and Victoria Silvstedt, to name a few.

Meanwhile, race car drivers George Russell, Antonio Giovanizzi, Nicolas Latifi, Jack Aitken, Stoffel Vandoorne, Nyck De Vries, Mitch Evans, Norman Nato, Nick Cassidy and Andre Lotterer all took to the catwalk in support of Caudwell Children.

This year’s event showcased a number of designers including Beach and Cashmere Monaco by Federica Nardoni Spinetta, Inessa Creations Monaco by Inès Bensalah, Laura Spreti, Ymaginaria by Sofia Alemani, Pasquini Roma, and JFC Style Authority Menswear. Pauline Ducruet closed the Amber Lounge Fashion Show with her bespoke Alter collection.

The incredible selection of auction items included a Hayo Sol painting titled ‘Princess Grace Eternal’, a one kilogram Michael Schumacher gold coin, a trip on the Orient Express from Venice to London, ‘Ayrton Senna’ artwork by Marcos Marin, a Whistler ski chalet package for 12 guests, and 250 personal vintage bottles of Hatt et Söner bespoke champagne.
