epic... announced last month that the late isabella blow's entire wardrobe was to be going to auction at christie's in london. many commentators suggested that her collection was too vast and brilliant to be sold off in pieces, that it be sold as a whole, to be archived, so that future generations could enjoy its greatness and in turn celebrate isabella flair for the avant-garde. fast-forward to today, where informed the world that the one and only, daphne guinness has picked up the entire collection, including 90 alexander mcqueen outfits, many dresses by john galliano and a vast range of hats by acclaimed milliner philip tracey. ms. guinness, an avid couture collector herself believes that 'like any artist, it [blow's wardrobe] should not be dispersed, but remain as a monument with people having access to it' and that blow's collection of mcqueen proves that he 'really deserves a place in fashion history'
great news indeed...
