Ira Statfeld hosted an exclusive party at a private residence in Miami Beach for artist and fashion designer Ala von Auersperg on January 31 that attracted an A-list crowd of fashionistas and more.

Known for her resort-wear collection that transitions seamlessly from afternoons on the beach into cocktail hour, von Auersperg launched her eponymous line in 2015, lifting her paintings of tropical flowers and delicate sea coral straight from the canvas and digitally printing them onto lightweight, easy-to-wear silks, linens and meshes.

Von Auersperg, the daughter of Prince Alfred von Auersperg and Sunny Crawford von Bülow, had painted and drawn for more than a decade before entering the world of fashion. She also is a philanthropist and a tireless advocate for victims’ rights, founding the nonprofit National Center for Victims of Crime in 1985 and Brain Trauma Foundation (then the Sunny Von Bulow Coma and Head Trauma Research Institute) in 1986.
