Frick Garden Party for Fellows and Young Fellows


On a beautiful Spring evening, fellows and young fellows of The Frick gathered to celebrate their favorite art museum! A very special evening, Frick’s annual Spring Garden Party is the single night of the year when Fifth Avenue Garden is accessible to attendees.

New York creme de la creme of all ages gathered to socialize and show off their best pastel attires surrounded by blooming Queen Elizabeth roses. Fashion statements were made with accessories and unique designer fascinators and Fifth Avenue Garden looked like a runway where major trends of the season were set. When it comes to Frick fellows and young fellows there is no lack of creativity nor fear of color. Posh fashionistas were especially inspired by fresh flowers. Ladies wore flower wreaths and gentlemen beautiful boutonnieres. How special!

Tunes of jazz quartet , The Flail, immediately put most of us in the party mode and for those who needed an extra push first had a sip or two of Sipsmith London Dry Gin martini.

Gorgeous garden, Sun still up and gorgeous  rhododendrons and hibiscus flower arrangements called for almost editorial like photoshoots before the dance in the Music Room or a walk through the atmospheric permanent collection galleries and special exhibitions. Another element that makes Spring Garden Party special is the rarely open to the guests second floor of the former Frick mansion.

Special evening indeed so take a look at the gallery bellow to see some of our favorite looks:
