As Art Basel Week opened in December, trendsetters converged for an interactive evening of discussion examining the landscape of design and luxury trends. Post-Vernissage, the elite gathered for an elegant and exclusive dinner party at The Forge in Miami Beach.
For the second consecutive year, the Post-Vernissage party was hosted by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars and Haute Living, who were joined by Shareef Malnik and Antonio Misuraca. For the evening, The Forge featured works of renowned artist Lori Hyland on display.
Guests included Tom Wolfe, Mike and Alicia Piazza, Joey Goldman of Goldman Properties, and Mayor Manny Diaz. With models clad in vintage attire provided by C. Madeline, and rare, non-commercially available vintages poured, including Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame 1990, Chateau La Nerthe, Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2003, and Chateau d’Yquem, Sancerre 2003, the festivity was a great success, ensuring that next year’s dinner will once again be one of Art Basel’s most coveted invites.
