Daphne Guinness is going on display once again. But this time it’s not a window performance piece at Barneys nor an exhibit dedicated to her enviable collection of couture. Paris department store Printemps has teamed with the heiress and photographer Nick Knight‘s SHOWstudio to create virtual mannequins of Guinness for their store windows, using photographic images rendered using cutting-edge three-dimensional scanning technology. 

Virtual Statues of Daphne Guinness to Go on Display in Paris Department Store

Entitled “Visions Couture,” the display will feature these Daphne avatars in looks from Paco Rabane, Gareth Pugh, Maison Martin Margiela, Rick Owens and Junya Watanabe — in other words, a fierce fashionable feast for the eyes. ”Visions” will also include short films by Knight about each outfit and an interactive display by multimedia artist Danny Brown, utilizing images submitted by the public and passersby. The Daphne-quins will be unveiled come February 6. [WWD]
