We have just been involved with the Amber Lounge Fashion Show which is held on the Friday before the Monaco Grand Prix every year. This event raises money for charity and this year the charity was The Amber Foundation which helps people get back onto their feet with job skills and housing support. We thought it would be fun to make up a couple of shimmerwalls of some popular racing drivers and Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg were chosen. We were very fortunate that Lewis and Nico were happy to support the charity and signed plaques for us to go on the pictures making them even more valuable! The pictures were exhibited on exhibition stands before the main auction so they could be seen by potential bidders before the main auction event in the reception area where drinks were served. The Amber Fashion Show raised lots of money for the charity with some fantastic donations for the auction lots and we were lucky enough to sit in the front row and see the Show and the great entertainment.
Both pictures are totally unique but equally stunning! They created a big wow on display before the evenings “silent auction” and allowed us to show how visually stunning sequin art can be.
It was fun to be involved in providing something totally unique and being able to contribute in some small way to the great work this charity does, and of course thanks to The Amber Lounge for looking after us so well.
