Not Just an Heiress

                "What draws me to fashion is art...and certainly not fashion as a status symbol"'
""Daphne Guinness in Water" by David LaChapelle, 2008

Throughout the years at FIT there have been many exhibitions about individual designers, but there has been few on fashion icons. On September 16th, the museum opened its doors to a new exhibit on the fashion icon Daphne Guinness. Daphne, a collector of couture is fearless about wearing the most extreme fashion and has been the inspiration to many designers. The exhibit is broken up into six sections, each devoted to an aspect of Daphne's style. Over 100 pieces from Daphne's closet will be on display through January 7th including over two dozen pieces from Alexander McQueen that were not displayed last month at the Met.
