One of the world’s most renowned fashionistas, Daphne Guinness, heiress extraordinare and eccentric par excellence is looking at fashion from a very interesting perspective. Daphne is all for the pin down. In time, in place. Noblesse oblige, I guess:
“Fashion is not just about trends. It’s about political history. You can trace it from the ancient Romans to probably until the ’80s, and you can see defining moments that were due either to revolutions or changes in politics… But now we’ve been feeding on a sort of cadaver. At the moment, we’re just endlessly recycling the past.
There hasn’t been anything real since grunge. That was the last movement led by music or an art form.”
