There is an exhibition at Somerset House in London of the clothes of the fashion icon, Isabella Blow, whom I met when I managed the Philip Treacy show during London Fashion Week.

Isabella worked at Vogue. She discovered Philip Treacy and Alexander McQueen.

She committed suicide and McQueen never got over the loss of his friend. He also committed suicide.

There is an excellent book on Isabella Blow’s life. Written by her husband, it is called “Blow by Blow”.
