Pari Dust is not your average personal style blog. Created in 2013 by former architect and interior designer Pari Ehsan, the site (and its wildly popular Instagram feed) mixes pieces from Ehsan’s favorite runway collections and art shows around the globe. On planet Pari Dust, a structured Tod’s leather blouse meets Bosco Sodi at Pioneer Works, a feminine Zac Posen frock pops against Richard Meier’s minimal Getty Center, and an ethereal floor-length gown by The Row looks right at home among Tara Donovan’s clouds at Pace Gallery. Before jetting off to Art Basel Miami Beach where a full social calendar awaits her, the art and fashion lover shares a few of her favorite things for the festival and beyond.
