A unique, haute couture gown, made specifically for Daphne Guinness
A Sculptural Metallic Silver Mini Dress
Alexander Mcqueen, 2008
This design was first viewed by Daphne in Alexander McQueen’s collection in 2008. After seeing it, Daphne asked Lee to create four dresses in this style, in different materials (one black, one black long sleeved, one feathered, and one silver). McQueen didn’t make the dress for his shop, it was a show piece. A favourite dress of Daphne’s, she has worn it to several high profile occasions and has been photographed with the likes of Mario Testino and David Furnish whilst wearing it.
