When it comes to glitz and glamour, few sports events can match the Monaco Grand Prix weekend where the super-rich descend for a week of extravagance.

Amber Lounge events are legendary, the ticket to have on the eve of any Grand Prix and, on this occasion, amid challenging COVID-19 protocols this year’s event took place on Friday at the principality.

This is what they had to say of the event:

The Amber Lounge Fashion Show, made its return after a year and a half of enforced silence with partners Gulf Oil International and Oribe.

Despite running under covid restrictions, the team worked endlessly to deliver a dynamic and artistic fashion event.

Amber Lounge returned to its roots running, within the iconic Glass Atrium at the Grimaldi Forum, showcasing both local Monaco and international brands who payed tribute to Monaco with environmentally and sustainable collections.

This year’s event showcased a number of designers including BEACH & 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 prestigious event 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.

While 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.

The charity auction was an outstanding success with upwards of half a million euros raised, with the silent auction continuing until Sunday. The final amount will be confirmed in the coming days.

Amber Lounge Founder & CEO Sonia Irvine summed up: “What a fantastic evening, I am really proud of how the Amber Lounge Fashion Show was delivered, its 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 Euro for our charity partner Caudwell Children makes the event a great success.”
