Daphne Guinness, one of today’s most original fashion icons, is the subject of the exhibition Daphne Guinness at The Museum at FIT. On view through January 7, 2012, the exhibition features approximately 100 garments and accessories from Guinness’s personal collection, plus films, videos, and images, of and by her.
A close friend of the late Alexander McQueen, the exhibition will include more than two dozen McQueen garments which have never been displayed. Also featured will be extraordinary haute couture from Chanel, Dior, Givenchy, Lacroix, and Valentino, as well as demi-couture by Azzedine Alaia, Dolce & Gabbana, and Rick Owens, and futuristic styles by young designers such as Gareth Pugh. Clothes that Guinness has designed herself will show her love of uniforms.
Another exhibition highlight will be a wide range of extraordinary accessories, many of which were created in collaboration with Guinness. These include Philip Treacy’s hats and Shaun Leane’s “armor” jewelry, as well as the famed towering platform shoes by Nina Ricci and those made especially for Daphne by Christian Louboutin and Noritaka Tatehana.
