Artistically Social with Amy Rosenberg
Gearing up for Basel
During Basel, I summon all of my fortitude to get through morning collectors’ breakfasts, home tours, shows, quirky installations and over-the-top (and often silly) themed parties (P Diddy hosting a book party called Culo, anyone?). Alternative art space, Locust Projects, hosted How to Art Basel, an event organized by Ivy and Friends (a group of smarty pants folks who graduated from Ivies and other prestigious universities) to combat art fatigue and get everyone ready for what is to come. The event drew 150 guests who dined on TIKL’s eggplant romescu and homeade kit kat bars as well as Vita Coco coconut water.

Saks Fifth Avenue Bal Harbour presented Emilio Pucci’s Spring 2013 Fashion Show Designed by Peter Dundas at the Destination Fashion event (and first time the collection is shown in the US) Of course, there was much more to be seen on the fashion front–Opening of H & M on Lincoln Road, a trunk show at the fabulous Coltorti Miami Boutique on Lincoln Road to benefit Locust Projects, The Wolfsonian Visionaries’ Art of Illumination and the chic brunch at the St. Regis Hotel in honor of International Polo sensation Ignacio “Nacho” Figueras and his wife Delfina Blaquier.
