EXCLUSIVE: Altuzarra to Sponsor The Frick’s Annual Young Fellows Ball

Altuzarra will be the sponsor of this spring’s Young Fellows Ball at The Frick museum, which will be held on March 21. The night will be themed “Notte a Palazzo” (Night at the Palazzo), and is inspired by the upcoming exhibition at the museum, “Moroni: The Riches of Renaissance Portraiture.”
“I am honored to be partnering with The Frick Collection this year on celebrating ‘Moroni: The Riches of Renaissance Portraiture,’” Joseph Altuzarra said. “Renaissance portraiture has been a constant source of inspiration for me over the years and I’m excited to have the opportunity to delve into the Frick’s wonderful show this year.” 
The event will be chaired by Altuzarra, Paul Arnhold, Lili Buffett, Larry Milstein, Britt Theodora and Vanessa Traina.
Past fashion sponsors of the Young Fellows Ball include Escada and Carolina Herrera.

“Moroni: The Riches of Renaissance Portraiture” will be on view at the museum Feb. 21 through June 2.

Frick Collection’s Young Fellows Ball Celebrates Don Quixote Exhibit

The invitation read “Don quixotic black tie,” and whether that was a typo or an intentional blending of noun and adjective, the women who arrived at The Frick Collection’s Young Fellows Ball on Thursday were decked out in flamenco ruffles and matador-inspired outfits. The theme, “A Dance at the Spanish Court,” took inspiration from the museum’s special exhibition Coypel’s Don Quixote Tapestries: Illustrating a Spanish Novel in Eighteenth-Century France. Many were dressed by Lanvin, the evening’s sponsor, including chairmen Lydia Fenet Delaney, Elizabeth Kurpis, and Amory McAndrew. “I always love the Frick [gala], seeing what everyone’s wearing. People really dress for the theme, unlike many other parties,” Delaney said. “The setting lends itself to being really dramatically dressed,” McAndrew piped in. Adding to the drama—or the Instagram fodder at least—were customized fans emblazoned with “Lanvin [hearts] the Frick” in gold cursive. Guests playfully hid behind the accessory for photographers circling, and, later in the night, to add a little extra flair to their dance moves.
