The late Isabella Blow — editor, muse, fearless wearer of avant-garde hats and advocator of absolute personal style — now has an exhibition devoted to her fantastical wardrobe which opened today at the Somerset House in London, England. According to Vogue UK, the collection was originally bought in a bid by Blow’s friend and fellow style icon Daphne Guinness to stop it from being sold at a Christie’s auction.
“The decision to put Isabella’s wardrobe on display was a natural progression; it felt like what she would have wanted,” Guinness told the international Vogue. “I bought the collection because I couldn’t bear for it to be dispersed; it was her life’s work – her legacy. What better way of celebrating that legacy than allowing the world to view it?”
