Thursday, September 22nd, 2011
A closet fit for a museum: You can now cruise through Daphne Guinness' closet Hall of Fame member, socialite, and style muse, the Honorable and honorably excessive Daphne Guinness has her priceless collection of couture on display at the Fashion Institute of Technology. The exhibit features over 100 garments belonging to the platinum-and-black haired enigma, including Alexander McQueen boots, sky-high red heeless shoes by Nina Ricci, and other rarities from Chanel, Gareth Pugh, Oscar de la Renta, and Valentino, to name just a few. “I’m very nervous, I have no idea if people will like it or not like it,” Guinness told WWD,  “I’ve been working on this for two years and it’s been a collaborative effort. This whole experience, putting this together, has been very surreal.” Daphne Guinness at F.I.T. will be on display through January 7, 2012. See into Daphne Guinness' closet a little more below.
