On Friday 4 of October Simon Holloway and Alessandra Carra, respectively creative director and CEO of renowned brand Agnona, together with Creative Growth Art Centre, GARAGE and fashion insiders, hosted a dinner party during Frieze in order to celebrate NY-based artist Carrie Oyama, class 1948.

The Italian brand decided to donate the proceeds of the event to The Creative Growth Art Centre, an association for artists with developmental, intellectual, and physical disabilities founded in 1974 in Oakland, California. Its mission is based on the fact that art should be considered a fundamental part of the human experience, and for that should be preserved, protected and be accessible to any kind of person. The Creative Growth Art Centre aims to represent and offer a safe space for artists, providing them studios for their artistic growth and galleries where they can exhibit their pieces.
