Daphne Guinness Exhibition
The Museum at FIT in New York launches an exhibition dedicated to style icon and couture-lover Daphne Guinness on 16th September, showcasing over 100 garments and accessories from Guinness’ personal collection plus films and images.
Running through to January 7th 2012, the exhibition follows on from Alexander McQueen’s record breaking exhibition ‘Savage Beauty’ at The Met Museum.
Tom Ford credits Guinness as ‘one of – if not the – most stylish women living‘. From her 10-inch Nina Ricci heels and avant-garde Philip Treacy hats to couture gowns by Alexander McQueen (more than 24 to be precise), the exhibition will explore how Guinness uses fashion to transform herself.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a book, also titled Daphne Guinness, written by Valerie Steele and Daphne Guinness, and published by Yale University Press. All royalties from sales of the book will benefit the Fashion Institute of Technology.
