On September 16th the Fashion Institute of Technology will unveil an exhibition of 100 fashion pieces from, in the words of Tom Ford, “one of the — if not the — most stylish women living,” The Honorable Daphne Guinness.
The Guinness brewery heiress is known for her killer eight-inch platforms, black-and-white striped hair and fearless style. She co-curated the eponymous exhibition with Valerie Steele and the two have prepared a fashion feast of her closet covetables.
Guinness’ appreciation and dedication to fashion runs deep. Last year she bought the entire Isabella Blow collection from an auction at Chrystie’s. As an avid collector and friend of the late visionary Alexander McQueen, expect to find pieces from him, as well as Azzedine Alaïa, Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel, Rick Owens and Gareth Pugh to name but a few. Also in the mix, some of her own designs, photographs and a video she made especially for the exhibit. So mark this one down in your calendar and be prepared to leave truly inspired, but with some serious closet envy.
September 16th through January 7th 2012
