Welcome to the latest edition of Working It, where Racked takes street style to the next level—Art Basel Miami Beach. The litmus test of the true style-savvy is how she (or he) rocks a look while schmoozing and selling artwork to clients. Forget the pedestrian khakis and an actual office look—these fashionable professionals take the office dress code to a whole other dimension. Quick, somebody call HR!

Julia Fischbach, Director
Style advice when working the room: Parties are an important component of our job. I try to keep comfort and function in mind in addition to style when dressing for an event. I am there to have a good time but its still work. A little balance is always key.
[Emanuel is wearing a Ralph Lauren Black Label blazer and shirt, a vintage enamel and gold dove brooch, Levi's denim, Hugo Boss black leather lace-up boots]
Emanuel Aguilar, Assistant Director
Style advice when working the room: I know its Miami but I don't flip flop, ever. I try to keep the core simple and add touches of color and vintage bling for that special glitz and glam.

Style advice when working the room: I try to approach style with attention to details and history. At the end the best accessories for the evening events are good friends such as artist Kadar Brock.
[Peter is wearing a Gant flannel shirt, Supreme V-neck sweater, an original U.S. military coat, Topman black chinos and limited edition Vans]
Peter Skvara, Registrar and Preperator
Style advice when working the room: I think of style the same way I think of art, a mixture of adventure, academia, and astronaut in training flare. Go with your passions.

Style advice when working the room: Feeling good, looks good. Sop it up. [All photography: Ray Medina]
