Wisdom from Fashion Icon Daphne Guinness

Last week I went to check out the Daphne Guinness exhibit at The Museum at FIT. It is amazing. Not only is her wardrobe a piece of art but her words of wisdom I took away from the exhibit were inspiring (…yes, I took notes).  Here are a few of my favorites:

“I don’t do event dressing because every day is an event.”

“Fashion today is becoming more beige. By that I mean everyone and everything is starting to look the same – almost a Mao uniform. We should be flying the flag for individuality.” 

“I like structure…with a bit of chaos.”

“We need better things, not more. We should not pollute the world with meaningless unused things when we can make and support things of rare and precious beauty.” 

Hands down this is the best exhibit I have seen at The Museum at FIT so far!
