In the first of a new series, we document the sartorial sensibilities of women in the art world and on the go. There’s a lot to look at at Frieze New York this week. There was another kind of visual inspiration in ample supply as well: the sartorial flair of fairgoers. Art-fair aisles offer a particular kind of catwalk, where dealers and collectors alike strive to remain comfortable (you are on your feet most of the day, after all) without compromising style.
And despite the gray, rainy day, a number of attendees were up to the challenge nonetheless during Frieze’s VIP preview on Wednesday. As the first installment of a new series documenting art-world style, we’ve rounded up some of the best ensembles spotted during the Frieze fair’s kickoff day

We hope you enjoyed this glimpse into the real world of cosmopolitan art fair fashion, and perhaps glean some ideas for the next Park City Gallery Stroll on May 31. See you soon!
