The MCFW is organized annually by the CMM, under the High Patronage of H.S.H. Princess Charlene of Monaco in partnership with the Government, the Town Hall and the Monaco Tourism Office. The MCFW has gained in prestige with every new edition and has become an anticipated rendezvous 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 cheque for 15,000 Euros to the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation, to support 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.
