What is Art Basel?
With Miami Art Week 2018 fast approaching, I have to say that the single most asked question in my life is ‘What is Art Basel, and why are you going again?’
It is hard to explain what exactly Art Basel is, as it is honestly a mix of everything. However my best attempt to sum it up is that its ALOT of art (in fact over 22 art fairs), tons of parties, dinners, brunches, music, book signings, fashion shows, panels, and pretty much anything else you could imagine that has to do with the creative aspects.
One of my favorite things about Art Basel is meeting so many artists and having the opportunity to talk with them.
During Art Miami I had the pleasure to meet US based artist Christopher Martin who has showrooms in both Aspen and New York City.
We Are Here.
One of my favorite aspects of Art Basel is coming across artists who merge their art and style into something unique. As every time you get dressed in the morning, you send a message to your friends, family, and the world of how you want others to perceive you, as well as a clear message of how you may have decided to tackle the day ahead. When I put on a killer pair of 6 inch heels, I wont lie, I feel like I can conquer anything.
Going from art fairs to launches and events, literally left me with so much inspiration for future looks and outfits. I published some of my favorite outfits and ensembles from the Scope Art Fair Platinum VIP view last year HERE.
One look that I adored at Scope Art Fair Platinum VIP viewing, was on artist and activist Alessandra Mondolfi. The accessories that she designed and was wearing, held a powerful message, each piece of the earrings and necklaces showed both the negative and fearful aspects that have become so common, with the reverse side in the positive.
