Fashion As Art


Heiress and artist Daphne Guinness brought New York department store Barneys’ windows to life this week with a performance to coincide with the opening of the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (the Met).

Appearing in Barneys’ Madison Avenue windows on Monday, Guinness treated audiences to an interpretive dance, before disappearing behind a screen to dress in an Alexander McQueen feathered creation for the evening’s Costume Institute Gala at the Met. This marked the beginning of a six-week collaboration with the store, titled Fashion as Art, for which she will curate weekly installations.
