In my much younger days of flipping through the glossy pages of fashion mags, there was always one women that stood out from the rest. I wasn’t familiar with who she was just fascinated with her creamy white skin, brightly colored lips and those hats!!! I remember thinking to myself “I want to be an eccentric fashion lady like that when I grow up!”. As I grew up and became more immersed in the fashion world, I became more familiar with “that lady”, Isabella Blow.
Isabella Blow is noted for discovering Alexander McQueen and super models Sophie Dahl and Stella Tennant, muse to hat designer Phillip Treacy, her work in the fashion magazine world: U.S. Vogue in the 80’s, style editor of Tatler (UK) and The Sunday Times Magazine…the list goes on. The fashion world (the world in general) lost a true fashion icon on May 7th. Mrs. Blow lost her battle with ovarian cancer that day. The pages of those glossy fashion magazines (especially come fashion week time) just aren’t going to be the same…something will always feel like it’s missing.
