Sustainable fashion will be the star of the catwalk during Monte Carlo’s Fashion Week, which will take place from 14-18 May 2021. With fast fashion being one the leading causes of global pollution, Monaco will be showing the world how ethical and environmental clothing makes everyone look and feel great.
The Monte-Carlo Fashion Week 2021 will be under the High Patronage of HSH Princess Charlene of Monaco for the fifth year in a row.

The contest closes on 15 April and the winner will be presented with the Monte-Carlo Sustainable Award on 18 May and will have the opportunity to present their collection in the official program of the MCFW.
