Happy Hour With Guinness
Last night at Jefferson Hack’s Another Magazine dinner, the table conversation, for the most part, circled around the past several days of runway shows. Plenty of people, however, were buzzing about Daphne Guinness’ FIT exhibit opening this Friday.
“I’m so excited for her show,” Hack, who first met Guinness through Alexander McQueen, told Style.com. “I think it’s a real moment for people to discover her genius and reevaluate what she brings to fashion, which she has been doing very quietly in the background and now bringing it to the foreground with FIT.”
Guinness, who was on hand at the dinner, admitted she’s anxious about the exhibit, which will show off more than 100 pieces from her enviable wardrobe. “I’m feeling nervous—I’m putting everything on the line here with this exhibit and I just want to get it right,” Guinness said. “I want people to understand the impact it can have—it’s sad because fashion isn’t a political statement anymore, but it used to be.”
