Walpole launches New York Trade Mission at US Ambassador’s Reception 

Last week, Walpole, in association with Frieze, celebrated the launch of our annual British Luxury Trade and Press Mission to New York at an elegant cocktail reception at Winfield House – the private residence of US Ambassador Robert Wood ‘Woody’ Johnson and Mrs Johnson. 

The evening focused on the ‘special relationship’ between the US and UK, and highlighted the importance of creative and cultural collaborations, with speeches from Ambassador Johnson; Michael Ward, Walpole Chairman and MD of Harrods; and Nathan Clements-Gillespie, Artistic Director at Frieze.
