Love or hate the fearless style of Daphne Guinness [by the way, “fearless” could translate quite literally when you see the heel-less platforms she deftly balances on]–her individualistic, oft-times extreme, fashion sense has made her an icon in the industry. Avant-garde designers live to dress her, or rather transform her, and fashion spectators anxiously await the latest couture revelation.

All of which make for ideal exhibit subject matter at The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology, where approximately 100 pieces are being shown through January 7, 2012, including accessories from Philip Treacy’s millinery to Shaun Leane’s “armor” jewelry and high fashion arc from demi-couture to haute couture, all dating from 1999-2011.   // Click Here for MORE @
