Celebrity designer to hit the runway

International designer Yolancris, known for dressing A-list celebrities like Beyoncé, the Kardashian sisters and Christina Aguilera, will be dressing the female models for the Amber Lounge Charity Fashion Show.

We are excited about…

It is a pleasure to be part of the Amber Lounge Charity Fashion Show that has raised millions over the years since its foundation in the early 2000s. We are really looking forward to the show and to the whole event. The last show we did was in Paris during the Haute Couture week and this will be a very different scenario and experience.

Working with celebrities is exciting because…

When you design a piece you kind of imagine what type of person will wear it and how they will wear it. But suddenly, a woman with a completely different style from what you had in mind, wears it, breaking all your schemes. But I love it. I find it super exciting to see how the garments I design transform and are transformed by the women who wear them. This sort of happens with all the clients, but not all of them happen to walk around red carpets and I get to see them in magazines and on TV. Seeing the icons of today's music and some of the most powerful women on the planet in a dress that you have made is amazing, it’s overwhelming. I love all my clients, famous or not, but the first one gives you that adrenaline rush.

Advice to upcoming bridal designers…

That they have to dream, but they have to also master the most basic, the core, which in this profession are the techniques. I always advise young students not to only have a designer profile but also a craftsman, an artisan profile. We need thinkers-executors.

Tipsfor modern brides…

Do not wear a costume. Your wedding day is a super special day, but you should not stop being yourself. If you are casual, be casual. If you are a princess, be a princess. If you're sexy, be sexy. When the brides want to defend a design or a style that is not theirs, it doesn’t feel natural. I think it’s more beautiful that each bride is different and special in her own way, when they don’t follow trends that they don’t feel identified with and wear whatever they feel like wearing.


KARDASHIANS DESIGNER YOLANCRIS HEADLINES THE AMBER LOUNGE CHARITY FASHION SHOW

24-25-26 May at Monaco Grand Prix 2019

Made famous by dressing the Kardashians, Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Christina Aguilera, Shakira, Rosalía and Cindy Bruna over the years, Yolancris designs will hit the Amber Lounge Charity Fashion Show catwalk on Friday May 24th.

“Yolancris has participated in several charity events and will be working on a program collaboration hand in hand with a Barcelona dressmaking school for the reintegration of women at risk of exclusion.That’s why Yolancris is very happy to participate in such an event in Monaco, with so many friends and clients of the brand, but especially to collaborate in the Amber Lounge Charity Fashion Show.”

The iconic annual Fashion Show also signifies the European launch of Ladyship swimwear designed by former Christian Dior model, reality star and author, Lady Victoria Hervey. The collection is the first of the British “It” girl’s luxury lifestyle range boasting bold, sexy pieces.
