Style Icons: Female »Isabella Blow

isabella blowI was devastated to hear the news that one of the most interesting women in fashion had died. Many many people can be noted for their influence on fashion, but very few influenced in so many great ways with such flair as Isabella Blow.

She was one of the first to discover Alexander McQueen, buying his entire student collection; she truly made and discovered Philip Tracey, by setting him up in her basement to establish his hat making business, not to mention acting as his muse and biggest client.

She edited at Vogue and the Tatler in the course of her career and launched many famous faces like Sophie Dahl and Stella Tennant.

Unfortunately she has been rumored to be plagued by depression her whole life and always felt that she was never given much credit for her mark on fashion. A truly unique and sparkling woman has been lost and a huge void will be left.
