Isabella Blow, Fashion Galore!


Illustrations are Authors own

Last Wednesday, Somerset house opened their doors to a grand exhibit showcasing the life and musings of the Late Isabella Blow. Super stylist, editor and talent scout, Isabella was one of the most legendary style icons of her day and beyond. Discovering the likes of Alexander Mqueen and milliner Phillip Treacy, who went on to become two of the most influential creators and collaborators in the fashion industry to this day.

The exhibit takes you on a high fashion journey through the early life and career of Miss Blow, with a stunning show of pieces from her very own wardrobe, as well humourous and touching memoirs from her personal life. I adore how Blow pushed for creatives with a great emphasis on concept in design, her work represented an eccentrism and fearlessness toward style, bringing the art in fashion to life and celebrating the extravagant. She continues to inspire throughout the industry and elsewhere with the likes of Grace Jones and Lady Gaga emulating a somewhat Blow-esque image (think lobster hat).The showcase shares adoration to an industry icon well and truly missed! 

Get yourself down to the somerset house embankment galleries, for a peek into the life of distinguished fashion royalty. Book Tickets here

    1. Such an inspiration! The exhibit was bitter sweet I have to say. Wish you were in london to see it as I'm definitely going again.
