Daphne Guinness’ Closet Goes On Display
Now that the Met’s McQueen exhibit it over (*sob), there’s another fashion phenom exhibit all lined up to take it’s place. Daphne Guinness, friend of McQueen and, according to Tom Ford, “one of the – if not the – most stylish women living” and the Museum at FIT’s will exhibit her very own clothing collection.
Beginning September 16th, the exhibit will feature images and video created by the grand dame herself, plenty of photographs by famous photographers, and 100 extravagant fashion items from her closet. Fashion as art has always been a natural leap to me – it’s good to see museums continuing to take note.
