Miami Art Week is well underway and we’re looking back on yesterday’s packed roster of events, including a late-night party with Peter Dundas, the unveiling of Thom Browne’s first public installation, and more.
First, designer Thom Browne celebrated the unveiling of his first large-scale public work—the 21-foot Palm Tree I, made of colorful seersucker, pincord, and gingham oxford—during an intimate discussion with Artforum’s David Velasco. Coming together at Miami’s Moore Building, audience members like Diplo, Raul de Nieves, Craig Robins, Yolanda Wisher, Adam Kimmel, and Kimberly Drew sipped champagne while Browne and Velasco discussed the Browne’s artistic process, staging performances in his fashion shows, and more.
Then, nonprofit campaign #TOGETHERBAND launched its sustainability initiative, Global Goal 12, at a zero-waste party with ambassador Rosario Dawson, Abrima Erwiah, and artist Shinique Smith. The night saw guests like Arthur Baker, Bradley Herron, Charlott Cordes, Lorena Rae, Pritika Swarup, and Oliver Wayman celebrating responsibly, complete with an entirely sustainable, waste-free menu by chef Bradley Herron and views of Smith’s totemic sculpture, made of upcycled clothing.
Afterwards, fashion brand GANNI hosted a dinner in honoring the opening of its Miami store and Chloe Wise’s birthday. Guests like Alaina Berry, Vere van Gool, Miles Greenberg, Elena Soboleva, Lily Kwong, and Logan Jackson convened at The Miami Beach EDITION for an intimate evening meal, which included a giant papaya-shaped birthday cake.
And finally, Peter Dundas held a late-night soiree at the home of Peter Rahal, marking the reveal of his exhibition “Dream Makers: Fashion Illustrated,” curated by Artemis Baltoyanni. Partygoers like Alana Hadid, Cara Santana, Ricky Martin, Teyana Taylor, Rosario Dawson, and Paris Hilton celebrated the show (which features Dundas’ recount of influential historical and contemporary fashion illustrators) while being treated to a fun-filled, glamorous night, complete with performances from Jillionaire, Kaz, and Paco Versailles.
