Referred to in the media as an eccentric designer with wild taste and a flare for the unpredictable, Guinness in her own words is “just someone living in 2011……. I just am where I am”. An heir by direct descent of the famous Guinness family, this 45 year old artist, designer & model regularly works with the likes of Karl Lagerfeld, MAC and Philip Treacy. In this film, Brennan Stasiewicz gives us Guinness without the frenzy of high end gloss or tabloid sensationalism. Speaking to the camera about her work and thoughts around fashion, we find a graceful and poetic tone that allows us to understand who she at first hand and that people are never really that dissimilar.
