Art has the ability to bring people together. As this year’s Art Fair formally opened yesterday, enthusiasts from different statures explored the three stories of The Link. Some were there to simply look at the works, while others spotted additions to their collections.

As we walked around, we also spoke to some stylish attendees on their Art Fair 2017 experience. Each of them dressed comfortably as they went up and down the venue—a rule that we encouraged you to follow as well.

If you haven’t stopped by yet and curious to know more about the galleries, just read the anecdotes we gathered.
