The famous revolutionary Italian designer Chiara Boni will be the runway special guest at the next Monte-Carlo Fashion Week, now in its fifth edition.
From Thursday, June 1 through Saturday, June 3, 2017, the Monte-Carlo Fashion Week (MCFW©
) will take place in the Principality under the High Patronage of HSH Princess Charlene of Monaco.
The Monaco event dedicated to international fashion will be held at the new Fashion Village of Fontvieille in Monaco, and run over three days, with runways, presentations, conferences and lifestyle events geared to the international fashion community. MCFW©
is organised for the fifth consecutive year by the Chambre Monégasque de la Mode, with the continuous support of the government, the City Hall and the Tourism Office.
With each new edition the MCFW©
grows in prestige thanks to the participation of relevant names in the international fashion arena, and a parterre formed not only by international celebrities who often frequent the Principality, but also buyers, retailers, department stores, international journalists and social influencers.
The Executive Organising Committee of this highly anticipated event agreed to support the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation
, which was launched in December 2012 by the Princess with a primary objective to save lives by putting an end to accidental drowning, especially among children. Its mission is to raise public awareness about the dangers of water, teach children to swim while learning safety measures through the “Learn to Swim” and “Water Safety” programmes.
The Monte-Carlo Fashion Week 2017 will be held during the Italian National Day on Friday, June 2, and will celebrate Made-in-Italy with an exceptional guest, Chiara Boni, the renowned and revolutionary Italian designer. She will have the honour of closing the runway on Friday, June 2, with her collection Chiara Boni-La Petite Robe.
The three-day programme includes the opening Gala and Awards Ceremony on Thursday, June 1, at the legendary Oceanographic Museum of Monaco.
