The 5th edition of the Monte-Carlo Fashion Week has concluded with a tremendous success thanks to a succession of exciting and highly mediatized events. The MCFW© is a real success story gaining in prestige with every new edition, and becoming a fixture in the international fashion calendar.

The Fashion Shows and Fashion Hub, in official calendar, at the Fashion Village put the spotlight on Italian creativity, reserving for Chiara Boni – La Petite Robe the honor of opening the runways of the 5th MCFW©, and to Flavio Castellani, the romantic and audacious brand, the honor of closing the shows.

On the catwalk, the creations of Beach & Cashmere Monaco, the Monegasque brand by Federica Nardoni Spinetta with a “soul” inspired collection; the Mayan civilization selection by the multifaceted designer Thelma Spina from Guatemala; the geometric cuts and the romantic details proposed by Josephine Bonair; the Herblain collection by the designer from Cameroon Esther Mbia; the fairytale robes of Annalisa Queen, in its public debut with her “Contrasts” line; the innovative couture denim of Luca Taiana; the perfect elegance of Edda Berg. What’s more, the debut of Nordic Angels created by Marketa Hakkinen, wife of former Finnish F1 two-time world champion Mika Hakkinen; the creations with neo-gothic details and XVIII century exuberance of the Belarusian stylist Natasha Pavlunchenko; the wearable technology interpreted by the Turkish sisters Ezra + Tuba with their brand Ezratuba; the collection from Lapland by Venezuelan Mariela Pokka. From the island of Panarea in the Mediterranean, with its sensual atmosphere, came the inspiration for the beachwear and accessories brand A'Biddikkia.

The Made-in-Italy conquered the runway with the footwear brand of Nando Muzi; the romantic fashion dedicated to women who are spirited and independent created by Babylon. Also from Italy, Alef, Amato Daniele, Tina Macchi, Gattacci, Mineo Mare Pietrasanta, Minnie’s Jewels and the extraordinary previous leather work made-in-Tuscany of Pisani Maura magnifically interpreted by actor and model turned designer Vittorio Cucci Ryan.

The Marangoni Institute – Paris Fashion School contributed to the shows with their multicultural creativity through a collection designed by four carefully selected students from their Paris headquarters: Siniya He from China, Ophélie Berton and Hélène Lennon from France, and Fatima Danielson from Sweden. The MCFW 2017 has confirmed its vocation to discovering new emerging designers coming from all corners of the world. Representing East-European innovation the brand by Belarusian Kira Kirikovich; Marina Gurvich from Russia; from the Netherlands Ivana B.V. exhibited their couture bags; from Switzerland, Savelieff presented their sculpted jewels. From Hungary arrived designer Anita Pasztor who debuted with a collection reminiscent of her cultural heritage in a blend of art and design.

The MCFW© 2017 has raised the bar with the exclusive Fashion Awards Ceremony & Gala Dinner. Thanks to these events organized by the Chambre Monegasque de la Mode (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, Imbued with the international allure of Monte-Carlo, the MCFW© managed to assert its unique talent-scouting role offering emerging brands an exceptional site for communication and imaging, becoming a not-to-be-missed rendezvous for the research and promotion of fashion brands in an alternative context, more glamour and relaxed, respect to other well established Fashion Weeks.
