MatchesFashion 5 Carlos Place Takes Frieze

Over the weekend, MatchesFashion took over Frieze New York by hosting a series of panels and events with industry experts including Matthew Henson, Danny Bowien, Christopher Kane, Grace Wales Bonner, and more. The British luxury site also created its 5 Carlos Place retail concept, allowing guests to explore new collections by various up-and-coming and established designers during the 3-day art fair.
To kick off the festivities, British designer Wales Bonner hosted “Devotional Sound,” a performance event at St. Peter’s Church that featured an exclusive set by the one and only Solange. Some additional highlights include a panel moderated by fashion writer Alexander Fury with designer Christoper Kane and filmmaker Liz Goldwyn about the relationship between sex and fashion in 2019. Shanay Jhaveri, assistant curator of South Asian art at the Met, chatted with Wales Bonner and photographer Nick Sethi on the link between art and fashion.
