Daphne Guinness Exhibit at The F.I.T Museum

Unless you are a fashion connoisseur you probably never heard of Daphne Guinness. Daphne Guinness (Diana Joan Suzannah Guinness) is the heiress of the Guinness Family, yes the Guinness Brewery. She is known in the fashion world as a collector of haute couture and as a journalist. There have been many fashion exhibits for well-known designers but not many of fashion icons. Her unique sense of style and individuality sets her apart from the bunch.  Daphne is the epitome of personal style. 

The exhibit is a Fashionista’s  dream come true. Once you enter you feel like a kid in the candy store. So much art , design, color, one can seem to decide where to start. Her collection consists of many unique pieces that have never been seen before , especially garments from her close friend Alexander McQueen. She collects pieces from many designers,  even unknown designers. There is a mixture of classic elegant pieces and avant-garde garments. Her sense of style is very peculiar and eclectic. Some items and armor pieces look very futuristic like something Lady Gaga will wear other pieces look very regal.  Her mixture of high-end designer clothes with vintage or lower-end pieces make her style very original.

In one of the interviews Daphne says that she acts as a catalyst between designers, she could wear a piece from a design student with a high-end garment. Also she mentions  that she doesn’t do “event dressing” life is an event everyday therefore we should celebrate it.  If we can learn one thing from the heiress is that one doesn’t have to have a lot of moola to look great.

The Exhibit runs until January 7th, 2012 make sure to visit F.I.T if you’re in NYC.

A menos que seas es un conocedor de la moda probablemente nunca has eschuchado hablar de Daphne Guinness. Daphne Guinness (Diana Joan Susana Guinness) es la heredera de la familia Guinness, sí, la Cerveceria Guinness. Ella es conocida en el mundo de la moda como una coleccionista de alta costura y como periodista. Ha habido muchas exposiciones de moda para diseñadores famosos, pero no muchas exposiciones para los iconos de la moda. Su sentido único del estilo y la individualidad  la distingue del montón. Daphne es el epítome del estilo personal.

La exposición es el sueño de un fashionista hecho realidad. Una vez que entras te sientes como un niño en la tienda de dulces. Tanto arte, diseño, color, es dificil decidir por dónde empezar. Su colección se compone de muchas piezas únicas que nunca se han visto antes, especialmente prendas de vestir de su íntimo amigo Alexander McQueen. Ella colecciona piezas de muchos diseñadores , incluso de diseñadores desconocidos. Hay una mezcla de piezas clásicas y elegantes prendas de vanguardia. Su sentido del estilo es muy peculiar y ecléctico. Algunos artículos y piezas de armadura tienen un aspecto muy futurista como algo que Lady Gaga usaria otras piezas tienen un aspecto de realeza. Su mezcla de ropa de alta costura con piezas vintage o menos costosas , hace que su estilo sea muy original.

En una de las entrevistas Daphne dice que actúa como un catalizador entre los diseñadores, que podría usar una pieza de un estudiante de diseño con un vestido de alta gama. También menciona que ella no  “viste para eventos” la vida es un evento cotidiano por lo tanto, debemos celebrar. Si podemos aprender una cosa de la heredera es que uno no tiene que tener una gran cantidad de pasta para verse bien.

La exposición estará abierta hasta el 07 de Enero 2012, asegúrese de visitar FIT si estáis en Nueva York.

New York Fashion Week Spring 2012 Favorite Shows

Here are some of my favorite runway looks. It was really hard to break it down to a few designers. I really love the simplicity and chicness by Phillip Lim.  Also I love the fact that he incorporated black in the spring collection since it is my favorite color. Tory Burch was another favorite, I really liked the femininity and color combination. Bill Blass added a touch of nautical flavor to fashion week with his chic and elegant pieces.Lastly Badgley Mischka delivered a collection full of color popping ensembles.

Label Addict

I confess. I use to be a label addict, obsessed , label whore what ever you want to call it. I use to be the girl who never wore anything if it wasn’t brand or designer name. I’m not saying that I am proud of this. I use to look like a walking billboard with so many labels on me. Don’t judge me either , in our society we are conditioned to brag about what we have , especially in our American culture we are taught from an early age to show off what we have and we grow up with that idea. Since labels are expensive it represents a status , a status of  wealth and power therefore the easiest way to convey that message to others that we can purchase some items that others can’t is through fashion.

I use to think that it was normal until I discover vintage clothes. Vintage clothes broke the status quo for me.  Now I see fashion as art, as a mean to express myself not something to show off. I love how vintage clothes are unique , how they have a history and the older they get the better they look. I never thought I would even consider buying vintage clothes until I went to a thrift store and discovered another side of fashion.  Vintage clothes changed my mind completely about fashion and my motto now is – Is  not what you wear is how you wear it!  I’m not saying that I won’t buy designer clothes I’m saying that I am more open about fashion and new ideas. I like simple things too. Now I mix and match vintage with designers , high-end with low-end and I create unique outfits and fashion have become more fun.

This video will change your mind about clothes and personal style . This is a designer who wears nothing new and shops thrift stores.
