Vizcaya Museum and Gardens’ 62nd Annual Vizcaya Ball, “East Meets West: The Silk Road to Vizcaya,” was a resounding success, bringing the estate’s Eastern influences to the forefront of this grand event.

Inside, Presenting Sponsor Chopard’s boutique shined with elegant watches and jewelry while models featured Fashion Sponsor NAEEM KAHN’s designs. Before the scrumptious bayfront dinner by Thierry Isambert Culinary and Event Design, guests were enthralled with a Lion Dance in Vizcaya’s gardens.
