Visionary Blow


Sure to be fabulous in its entirety, an exhibition of fashion maven Isabella Blow’s wardrobe is set to go on view at Somerset House in England in the fall. Opening November 20, Blow’s daring and visionary collection, purchased in its entirety by Daphne Guinness, will show a range of pieces from Philip Treacy-designed hats to items showing her love and support of Alexander McQueen (whose entire 2008 spring/summer collection was dedicated to Blow). Bespoke mannequins will don entire outfits of the late fashion muse, and her gigantic shoe and hat collection will be a highlight.
