The Monte Carlo Fashion Week (MCFW) returns from 15th to 19th May as the official fashion event in the Principality of Monaco. Created in 2013 and organised by the Chambre Monegasque de la Mode(CMM), the 7th edition will feature resort, cruise and capsule Spring-Summer 2020 collections. The schedule of events includes shows by iconic and emerging designers at the Fashion Village in Espace Fontvieille, as well as fashion conferences and social events, leading up to the highly anticipated MCFWFashion Awards Ceremony on Friday 17th May.

Monte-Carlo Fashion Week is held under the High Patronage of H.S.H. Princess Charlene of Monaco and gains in prestige year after year, adhering to the international fashion week calendar.

The guest of honor of this edition is Alberta Ferretti who, on Saturday evening, will parade with the Cruise 2020 collection at the Yacht Club of Monaco. The designer, always a great supporter of ethical fashion, has recently launched a collection of garments made with carefully selected materials, with certifications that guarantee the recycled origin of the material, the use of biological fabrics and a reduction in the use of chemical substances.

The 2019 edition of Monte-Carlo Fashion Week coincides with another significant achievement, the 10th anniversary of the Chambre Monegasque de la Mode. The CMM was founded in April 2009 by Federica Nardoni Spinetta and serves two purposes. Firstly, it represents and spreads the values of local fashion designers and promotes the Made in Monaco creativity on an international level. It also aims to promote the Principality as a key to fashion worldwide.

The Chambre Monegasque de la Mode, in partnership with the Monegasque Government, the Monaco Town Hall and the Tourism Office of the Principality, regroup and federate diverse designers and brands such as Banana Moon, Beach & Cashmere Monaco, Diana d’Orville, Elizabeth Wessel, Leslie Monte-Carlo, Loona Monte-Carlo, and Stardust Monte-Carlo.

“We are proud to support emerging designers, offering the Principality of Monaco as a prestigious window to the world,” said CMM president Federica Nardoni Spinetta.

Last year’s event saw more than 40 international and Monegasque brands, representing 16 countries, presenting their collections and giving a particular focus to sustainability and innovation.

For the past three years, MCFW has supported the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation.
