The scene at the Bass Museum’s annual fundraiser was one of the most elegant of the year. The event, hosted by Criselda Breene, Christina Getty, Soledad Picon and Vogue México and Latin America, who sponsored the exhibition, Vanitas: Fashion and Art. The show was curated by Harold Koda, the celebrated Curator in Charge of the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, who was on hand for the event. Vanitas explored the relationship of between avant grade fashion and art by featuring wonderful pieces by Elsa Schiaparelli, Alexander McQueen, Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel, Isaac Mizrahi, Yohji Yamamoto from various decades.
The party, which featured delicious bites by Graspa Group like squid ink and truffle risotto, and a lavish charcuterie station, was chalked with VIPS from both Miami and afar. Designer Naem Kahn made the journey as did VOGUE México and Latin America editor-in-chief, Kelly Talama.
The Bass Museum is front and center in the news lately as talks for North Miami Beach’s MOCA merge with the Bass are underway. City officials in North Miami have said they won’t let it go without a fight but plans for weather the museum will actually leave and move to the Bass or just collaborate with the Miami Beach museum are murky.
