Isabella Blow's Wardrobe Sells To Daphne Guinness

Daphne Guinness is so pretty, she is DEFINITELY one of my STYLE INSPIRATIONS.
Ive posted a bit on her before but shes just too amazing:






 



From Source:
The clothing collection of fashion icon Isabella Blow won't be heading to auction after all. Last month I mentioned that her wardrobe was going up for sale at at Christie's in London on September 15. The collection, a treasury of vintage McQueen and featuring 50 hats by milliner Philip Treacy, has sold to a private bidder.

The NY Times reports that Daphne Guinness, a fashionable lady in her own right (we covered the auction of her own couture collection in 2008), has picked up the full collection. Blow's wardrobe was more than just what she wore, it was, as Guinness put it, "her DNA." Although Blow's career in fashion included a stint as Anna Wintour's assistant as well as consulting jobs for top fashion brands her claim to fame was really what she wore and the way she wore it. Her uniquely quirky style was avant garde but never cartoonish. Designers adored her for the sharpness of her taste and her willingness to embrace the unexpected. Guinness too has a similar fashion fearlessness. By preserving the collection as a single entity she saves not just Blow's legacy but also Alexander McQueen's, keeping the relationship between muse and designer intact.
