Tonight is Daphne Guinness' highly anticipated auction at Christie's! The style icon, and firm friend of SHOWstudio, will be selling off over one hundred pieces from her personal collection, including rare haute couture and accessories from designers such as Alexander McQueen, Balenciaga, Chanel, Christopher Kane and Gareth Pugh. There's even some Christian Lacroix couture from his first collection in 1987! Get down to Christie's for your chance to purchase a unique bit of fashion history!
The proceeds from the sale will go towards the very worthy Isabella Blow Foundation, a charity set up by Guinness to support aspiring art and fashion students and to facilitate further research into depression and mental health. To show our support for this wonderful endevour, SHOWstudio's Director Nick Knight sat down with Daphne herself to discuss the objectives behind the Foundation and her own unique - and highly personal - relationship with fashion.
