Many consider Chelsea the art district of the world, and there’s a reason you’ll find so many fashion schools near all these art galleries: the creative-minded feed off of each other, no matter their discipline. At Agora Gallery, we’ve taken note of our guests and their creative garb. Below, enjoy the 10 best dressed guests of 2014 (and one notable contender from 2013).
