Stealing the show this month is the inaugural She Inspires Art dinner in aid of Women for Women International, a non-profit that supports women affected by war. Taking place at Bonhams’ new flagship in Mayfair, the immersive evening will feature performance art and a showcase of works by international talent such as Kyoto’s Kohei Nawa, whose broad oeuvre – from taxidermy to striking crystal-glass sculptures – has made him one of Japan’s most sought-after young artists.

Over 270 VIPs will attend the gala dinner, including honorary committee members Barbara Broccoli and Pearl Lam, and recent Royal Academy graduate Jonathan Trayte, who has created bronze sculptures for the tables. Dinner will be followed by a fundraising auction of artworks donated by Pearl Lam (Everybody’s Thick Quilt, oil on canvas, by Zhu Jinshi, first picture), Zaha Hadid (Liquid Glacial stool, second picture), Sicilian jeweller Massimo Izzo and rising star Idris Khan.
