On April 26, 2024. Great success for the Monte-Carlo Fashion Week (MCFW), the official fashion event of the Principality of Monaco, which this year presented itself with a rich calendar of events. The twelfth edition, held from April 22 to 26, 2024, hosted resort collections, cruises, and capsules, as well as exceptional guests. The event, which gains prestige year after year, saw fashion shows and presentations mixed with moments of reflection on key themes related to circularity, sustainability, inclusivity, and diversity.


After the institutional opening at the Town Hall, the event continued in the exclusive setting of the Yacht Club de Monaco, where Federico Marchetti – Founder of the Yoox Net-a-Porter group, President of the Sustainable Markets Initiative Fashion Task Force founded by King Charles III, and member of the Board of Directors of Giorgio Armani – presented his book “The Adventures of an Innovator” during a face-to-face interview with Justin Highman – Deputy General Manager of the MEB. During the Fashion Awards ceremony, Federico Marchetti received the Positive Change Award as a digital entrepreneur and pioneer of sustainable fashion. The Godmother of the event Stella Jean opened the catwalks with a collection created in collaboration with artisans from Umbria. On the world stage premiere, she unveiled the Olympic uniforms of Haiti, created for the opening ceremony of the 2024 Paris Olympics. Sustainability is at the heart of the collection by Gracey Owusu-Agyemang, awarded the Sustainable Emerging Designer Award. A luxury collection that highlights Afro-Asian craftsmanship and culture, in collaboration with the Dijágo studios, co-founded with Khudija Zaib. Environmental focus for Beach & Cashmere Monaco by Federica Nardoni Spinetta, which presented a collection created with recycled sails from the Yacht Club de Monaco, highlighting the theme of circularity. Under the watchful eyes of buyers, including Claudio Betti from Spinnaker – a member of the Board of Directors of Camera Buyer Italia, awarded with the Ethical & Sustainable Buyer Award, fashion shows continued. A wild touch with the Victoria Silvstedt collection by Marli Dresses, the elegant Sicilian brand A’Biddikkia inspired by distant lands and ancient traditions, an Eastern breath with the couture of the Japanese Mami Okano, Leslie Monte-Carlo with a collection that breathes the Riviera, and the authentic and refined lingerie brand Les Dessous de Monaco. “We are proud to have supported Monegasque brands and to have offered creators and international fashion personalities the Principality of Monaco as a prestigious stage to present their collections and as a platform to discuss the importance of sustainable and circular fashion,” said Federica Nardoni Spinetta, President and Founder of the Monaco Chamber of Fashion and the Monte-Carlo Fashion Week. This year, Chiara Ferragni participated as a mentor for emerging creators, awarding Les Dessous de Monaco, the Haute Couture lingerie brand that stood out for its entirely Made-in-Monaco collection. Closing the shows, with scenographies created by the Pavillon Bosio – Academy of Fine Arts of Monaco, were the young designers from Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London, awarded with the Educational Award. The Fashion Hub, a dynamic venue that hosted the Pop-Ups, welcomed the Monaco Women in Finance Institute Symposium to promote inclusion and female entrepreneurship, as well as a new project against violence against women. Radio Monte Carlo was the official radio of the event.
