AMBER LOUNGE FASHION UNITES THE WORLDS OF FASHION AND MOTORSPORT TO RAISE MONEY FOR OUR CHARITY PARTNERS
MONACO, SINGAPORE & MEXICO CITY
Established in 2006 under the High Patronage of H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco, the glamorous Amber Lounge Fashion Show has become the most anticipated event in the F1 social calendar. With coveted front row seats filled by leading figures from entertainment, fashion, sport and royalty – the Amber Lounge Fashion Show pushes the limits by combining couture and motorsport, and has evolved to become an extravagant charity event.
The world’s top supermodels, including Petra Nemcova, Jessica Michibata, and Liliana Matthäus, regularly frequent the Amber Lounge runways, modeling the latest collections from designers such as Melissa Odabash, Julien Macdonald, Herve Leger, Missoni, La Perla, and Jimmy Choo. As Amber Lounge is deeply rooted in Formula One culture, our unique runways also feature top F1 drivers trading in the cockpit for the catwalk, modeling the most luxurious menswear.
Beyond the style and the high-profile media attention, Amber Lounge Fashion has raised more than $4 million for charitable organisations including the Special Olympics, the Elton John AIDS Foundation and the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund.
“A Grand Prix weekend is made up of many factors both on and off track. The Amber Lounge weekend experience adds to this with their fashion shows, in which I have modeled, their intimate dining venue, followed by their awesome parties with live acts and top Dj’s. Need I say more?”
Daniel Ricciardo, Red Bull F1 Driver
As the sun set over the spectacular Monte-Carlo skyline, Amber Lounge opened its doors to the Monaco Grand Prix weekend in magnificent style, bringing one of the hottest collaborations in British fashion, Odabash & Macdonald, to the iconic Amber Lounge runway. The luxurious Grecian-inspired resortwear, designed by Melissa Odabash and famed couturier to the stars Julien Macdonald, were lit in dazzling Amber and premiered to a glittering crowd of A-list celebrities, athletes, and royalty. The men of F1, including Daniel Ricciardo, Jean-Eric Vergne, and Esteban Gutierrez, also took to the runway, modelling bespoke suits by luxury menswear label, Apsley.
The Amber Lounge Singapore Fashion Show was headlined by none other than the darling of Singapore fashion, Francis Cheong, who designed an exclusive one-of-a-kind collection for Amber Lounge. The men of F1, modelling luxurious suits by JM Icon, complimented Cheong's lavish evening gowns and added show-stopping glamour to the night's festivities.
