From today, London's Somerset House will play host to an exhibition dedicated to the life and wardrobe of one of fashion's great eccentrics, Isabella Blow.
The late fashion director and stylist, who's thirty year career included positions at Tatler, Vogue and the Sunday Times Style, was a great patron of British fashion - she discovered many of our best known design talents, including Alexander McQueen, and was also responsible for launching the careers of successful models Stella Tennant and Sophie Dahl.
Her idiosyncratic wardrobe, now owned by Daphne Guinness, is heralded as one of the most important private collections of late 20th Century/early 21st Century British fashion, and over 100 of her pieces, together with photographs, correspondence and footage contributed by those who knew her, will be on display at the exhibition.
'Isabella Blow: Fashion Galore!' runs until 2nd March 2014.
