Melissa Odabash, Julien Macdonald and Apsley to Showcase at Amber Lounge Fashion in Support of Autism Rocks

Amber Lounge Fashion is returning for the 2015 Monaco Grand Prix bigger and better than ever with three designers set to showcase their extravagant designs at the iconic charity fashion show.

The 2015 Amber Lounge Monaco Fashion Show will take place on Friday, May 22nd, 2015 as the glittering opening act to Amber Lounge U*NITE which includes Amber Lounge's acclaimed charity auction, world class dining, and signature Fashion After Party. Overlooking the breath-taking Mediterranean Sea, the Amber Lounge Monaco Fashion Show, which incorporates a dramatic suspended runway over the swimming pool of the Le Méridien Hotel in Monte Carlo is the most anticipated event on the F1 social calendar and is the only venue in the world to feature F1 drivers on the runway.

For the 2015 Show, the dashing drivers of Formula 1 will be dressed exclusively in bespoke Apsley suits and will be accompanied by a bevy of international supermodels donning breathtaking one-off pieces from Julien Macdonald and Melissa Odabash (Odabash & Macdonald).

The two fashion icons, Melissa Odabash, whose designs are worn by A-listers across the globe from Rihanna to the Duchess of Cambridge, and Julien Macdonald who was personally chosen by Beyoncé to design the elaborate Wardrobe for her worldwide Mrs. Carter tour will collaborate on a show-stopping resort wear collection for Amber Lounge. The collection will fuse Grecian-inspired elegance, Parisian glamour, and full throttle sex appeal to a high-wattage crowd of A-list celebrities and VIP Amber Lounge guests. Amber Lounge Fashion's front row seats are amongst the most coveted in the world and have been filled by the likes of H.S.H Prince Albert II and H.S.H Princess Charlene of Monaco, Kim Kardashian, Justin Bieber, Bernie Ecclestone, Jennifer Lawrence, and Naomi Campbell just to name a few. Notable F1 drivers to have walked the iconic Amber Lounge runway include Lewis Hamilton, Nico Rosberg, Daniel Ricciardo, Valtteri Bottas, and Jenson Button to name a few.

Established in 2006, under the High Patronage of H.S.H Prince Albert II of Monaco, the glamorous Amber Lounge Fashion Show bridges the sophistication of couture and the liveliness of motorsport making it the Grand Prix's most dynamic and extravagant charity event. Amber Lounge Fashion 2015 will support Autism Rocks that raises funds exclusively for the Autism Research Trust with the help of the music industry's biggest names. In the past, Amber Lounge has helped raise more than $4 million for charitable organizations around the world.
