[New York Fashion Week] Some of the fashionable guests from Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld's hosted Ouattara Watts: Vertigo.
At the start of New York Fashion Week, Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld hosted the opening of Ouattara Watts: Vertigo. Over 1000 guests from the worlds of arts and fashion came out to celebrate Ouattara Watt's solo exhibition.
Vertigo, the first major solo exhibition from Ouattara Watts in nearly five years, featured 15 large-scale paintings. The work contained an unmistakable aesthetic that integrated traditional painting, native emblems, and collages of everyday materials. Watts emerged on the international art scene over 25 years ago as a prolific painter, whose work breathed a fresh air into the Neo-Expressionist landscape.
Above, some of the fashionable guests that were in attendance that I had the pleasure of snapping. The looks weren't as outrageous as the last Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld hosted event that I attended, but the few that I was able to capture were worthy of sharing. Coming up, a post on some of the accessories that caught my eye at the event. Remember folks, the devil is in the details!
