Style Authority Nina Garcia Curates Contemporary Art

Launch Slideshow

Newly appointed editor in chief of Elle magazine and well known as a formidable judge on the long-running hit TV show Project Runway, the Colombia-born style authority Nina Garcia is also an avid art collector. “There is an emotional response that happens when you see an artwork you love,” she says. “Art moves you, but art also finds you.” With her famously discerning eye, Garcia has chosen nine of her favourite works from Sotheby’s 27 September Contemporary Curated auction, including works from the collection of Santiago Barberi Gonzalez, her close friend and fashion-world colleague who died earlier this year. As a key force behind luxury accessories brand Nancy Gonzalez, “Santiago had an unmatched sense of creativity,” says Garcia. Click ahead for her personal highlights.
