If you're feeling creative making one of our shimmerwalls sequin art pictures is a great way to help raise money for charity.
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. This gave the guests time to see our pictures and all the other fantastic auction lots be seen by potential bidders before the main auction event whilst having welcome cocktails. 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. Eddie Jordan gave a rousing talk about the work of The Amber Foundation and how they are helping people with all different issues get back to work.
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 and sequin signs 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.
If you like our pictures why not order a picture of someone you love or as a memento of an important event!
