On May 24, raising the curtain on Grand Prix weekend, the Amber Lounge Monaco hosts its 12th charity fashion show. As in previous years, Formula One drivers will join the models on the catwalk, showcasing the work of the Canadian designer Christopher Bates (Lewis Hamilton, Nico Rosberg and Daniel Ricciardo have all strutted their stuff in the past). The show, which this year is supported by How To Spend It, will be followed by a silent and live auction. Highlights from the auction lots include a seven-day cruise aboard the world’s largest residential ship, fittingly called The World (estimate $47,000); a signed race suit belonging to Mercedes F1 driver Valtteri Bottas; and a 1kg gold coin, minted for the 50th anniversary of Jackie Stewart’s first F1 world title (estimate €40,000). All money raised will support the Race Against Dementia Foundation, which Stewart set up after his wife was diagnosed with the disease. Since its establishment, the Amber Lounge Monaco Fashion Show has raised over €4m for various charities.
