As Coco Chanel once said,
“Fashion changes, but style endures.”

The 2017 Winter Show theme, “The Art of Style,” celebrates the timeless elegance and sophistication of good design. True artistry is behind the best of fashion and interiors as well as antiques and art — whether it's the iconic design of a classic Chanel suit, the graceful carving of a Chippendale chair or the complex beauty of a Monet canvas.  “The Art of Style” recognizes the mastery of creativity and skill by great designers, craftsmen and artists, both past and present.
