"Daphne Guinness"
"Creativity is not only the province of designers," says Valerie Steele, the director and chief curator of the Museum at FIT. The idea that the person who wears the clothes is also a creator is at the heart of the museum's upcoming survey of British heiress Daphne Guinness, known for her outrageous sense of style. The show collects 100 outfits culled from Guinness's closet; you'll see designs from Alexander McQueen, Christian Lacroix and Tom Ford, along with items from edgier labels like Gareth Pugh. The Museum at FIT (fitnyc.edu/museum). Sept 16--Jan 7. Free.
