Would you like to know where the chicest New York City crowd celebrates first week of Spring? At the Frick Collection Young Fellows Ball!
So if you wish to mingle with the promising future leaders that appreciate art and all things nice put this in your calendar and start thinking of an outfit.
This year’s ball was organized in partnership with
ALTUZARRA inspired by the current
special exhibition Moroni: The Riches of Renaissance Portraiture.
We were able to talk to
Joseph Altuzzara who has been a fan of The Frick for a long time so once he was
given the opportunity to be a part of a such a special night says it was a no
When he was told about the Notte A Palazzo evening it seemed as a perfect match since a lot of his inspiration comes from paintings. He used to study art history and especially Italian Renaissance.
Some of the attendees
wore Altuzzara pieces from his previous collections and he wanted to present
and channel “performative” dressing. Meaning, people in portraits would wear
their finest clothing and it is a lot about going out to a special event like
the one this evening and showing up at your best.
That is exactly what
guests did. They showed up in their finest assembles and once the
private residence of businessman and philanthropist Henry Clay Frick was once
again filled with gowns, fascinators and range of colors.

For more than twenty years, the Young Fellows have
helped to ensure that The Frick Collection remains a singular museum
experience. Young Fellows’ gifts support the preservation of the permanent
collection, ground-breaking special exhibitions, annual symposia, award-winning
concert series, and outstanding lectures, as well as the maintenance of the
galleries and gardens of the landmarked Gilded Age mansion. Young Fellows’
events throughout the year offer social and educational opportunities for
lively exchange among young art enthusiasts.
