Called Wine Crush and hosted at Amy and John Phelan’s house, the evening centred itself around Preview Crush at the Baldwin Gallery and Casterline Goodman to show off the live auction items. While Australia is in the middle of the big chill, the northern hemisphere is celebrating their warmer months therefore the dress code was appropriately floral: think greenhouse chic.
