Daphne Guinness, one of today’s most original and extraordinary fashion icons, is the subject of The Museum at FIT. The world of art and fashion flocks to this stunning exhibit so skillfully styled and curated by Valerie Steele, Director of the Museum at FIT and by Daphne Guinness herself. Daphne generously loaned over 100 items from her personal collection and oversaw the installation. W2WW Fashion Editor, Hilary Dick met with Valerie to discuss her personal experience in working with this legendary stylesetter. “Daphne is one of – if not the – most stylish women living,” says fashion designer Tom Ford, ” The world has many beautiful, fashionable socialites and celebrities, but Daphne is in a class of her own.”
