Daphne G’s Museum-worthy Wardrobe

As you may know from hanging out in this space from time to time, Daphne Guiness is one of my fashion heroes.

No one can put together clothes like this woman. She is planets ahead of us all when it comes to style.

And now, well, in  2011, we can all ogle the gladrags she dons so well (and maybe, if I am lucky, even the tangled web she weaves!) at an exhibition of (what is surely a tiny fraction of) her wardrobe at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York.

The September 2011 ex will feature 80 to 100 pieces by McQueen, CDG, Alaia, Balenciaga and beyond.

Of course, the ex will be curated by the brilliant fashion historian and director/chief curator of The Museum at FIT,  Valerie Steele, plus a book will accompany the show.

I’ve already booked it off in my calendar.

Our dear, dramatic Daphne.
