This year’s Amber Lounge Fashion Monaco event will be in aid of the Brain & Spine Foundation.
The annual show, held on the Friday evening of the Monaco GP weekend, sees F1 drivers and their partners take to the catwalk.
The charity was chosen in the light of Michael Schumacher’s accident. Founded in 1992, the Brain & Spine Foundation assists people afflicted with severe brain and spine conditions.
“When I first heard news of Michael, it absolutely shattered me,” says Amber Lounge founder Sonia Irvine. “My brother, Eddie, had raced alongside Michael at Ferrari, and that’s when we became friends. I knew that the very least I could do was to help people who were in a similar condition to Michael but who do not have the resources to overcome their condition. Michael and his family will always have a close place in my heart and this year’s event will aim to raise as much as we can to support the Brain and Spine Foundation.”
The show features a charity auction and this year a new VIP experience called U*NITE. Amber Lounge says that “with one all-inclusive ticket, guests can dine on an exclusively designed menu, sit front row at the fashion show, set to be creatively spearheaded by luxe resort-wear design team Odabash & Macdonald, and dance until dawn alongside a buzzing crowd of celebrities and F1 drivers – whilst being given the opportunity to donate to the Brain & Spine Foundation.”
