What: VIP Kickoff for the 2018 Texas Contemporary Art Fair

Where: BeDesign

PC Moment: The glamorous interiors enclave BeDesign was the site of an intimate but chic cocktail kickoff for the seventh installment of the Texas Contemporary Art Fair, which is proudly returning after Hurricane Harvey postponed the Fair a year ago.

Co-owners Adrián Dueñas and Marcelo Saenz invited the art-savvy crowd for a toast to the Fair and to pick up their VIP pass cards.

BeDesign, in collaboration with Contour Interior Design, has created a smartly designed VIP Lounge for the Fair, which kicked off Thursday, October 4, at the George R. Brown Convention Center. The Fair runs through Sunday, October 7.

Dueñas told PaperCity the VIP Lounge will offer retrospectives of some of the signature designers BeDesign represents, including Zanotta, B&B Italia and Molteni & C.
