During last year’s 5th edition of the Monte-Carlo Fashion Week (MCFW), June 2017, the Chambre Monégasque de la Mode (CMM) had the pleasure to support the Fondation Princesse Charlène de Monaco. This was made possible thanks to the collaboration of all CMM members and fashion designers that participated in the MCFW organized by the CMM, under the High Patronage of H.S.H. Princess Charlene of Monaco, with the continuous support of the Monegasque Government, the Town Hall and the Tourism Office of the Principality. The MCFW gains in prestige year after year, and has become a main fixture in the international fashion calendar.
Federica Nardoni Spinetta, President of the Chambre Monégasque de la Mode, together with Mireille Pietri (CMM General Secretary) and Celina Lafuente de Lavotha (CMM Communications Attaché), had the great pleasure of delivering a check of 15,000 Euros to the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation, supporting their mission to raise public awareness about the dangers of water, and teaching children how to swim while learning safety measures through the “Learn to Swim” and “Water Safety” programs.
