This Summer, Daphne Guinness will auction off 100 pieces from her personal closet to benefit the charity she set up in Isabella Blow’s memory. “The Daphne Guinness Collection: Sold to Benefit the Isabella Blow Foundation” auction includes designs from Alexander McQueen, Chanel, Balenciaga and will go on sale June 27 at Christie’s South Kensington in London. Just previous to the sale, Christie’s will exhibit the items to the public from June 23 to June 27.
Guinness’s mission for the Isabella Blow Foundation, established in late 2011, is to support emerging talent at the intersection of art and fashion. A percentage of funds generated by the foundation will also go to mental health charities.
