On February 22, the Chambre Monégasque de la Mode (CMM) donated €15,000 to the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation.
A cheque was presented by Federica Nardoni Spinetta, President of the CMM, together with Secretary-General Mireille Pietri and Celina Lafuente de Lavotha, Communications Attaché, to help support the Foundation’s mission to raise public awareness about the dangers of water, and to teach children how to swim while learning safety measures through the “Learn to Swim” and “Water Safety” programmes.
This donation is possible thanks to Monte-Carlo Fashion Week (MCFW), which gains in prestige year after year, and has become a main fixture in the international fashion calendar. The forthcoming sixth edition of the Monte-Carlo Fashion Week, scheduled from May 16-20, at the Fashion Village of Fontvielle, is “honoured” to renew its support for the Princess’ Foundation for a second year in a row.
The MCFW 2018 will have a rich calendar of presentations and fashion shows for resort, swimwear, couture, and Spring/Summer 2019 ready-to-wear collections, directed to the local and international press, buyers and to selected VIP guests.
Conferences and round-table discussions with fashion experts are also part of the programme that together with attractive social events will be held around the Principality.
