Buy Daphne Guinness’ wardrobe!
Style icon Daphne Guinness is selling her wardrobe. Why would you ever want to sell such an incredible array of clothes? That’s what we asked too. But it’s for a good cause – the auction is being held at Christie’s on 27 June, with all proceeds going to the Isabella Blow Foundation, a newly launched charity set up by the Guinness to help support young art and fashion talent.
Burberry has launched a new multi-faceted digital campaign on Vogue.com that includes video, a slideshow and a click-to-buy component! Just another way that the global brand is using the internet to its full effect.
