19 Reasons why you should love Isabella Blow

Isabella Blow was a fashion editor, a style icon and a muse for several designers. Starting off as Anna Wintour's assistant, she eventually became editor of Tatler magazine. Blow is credited for discovering talented designers such as Philip Treacy and Alexander McQueen when she bought his Central Saint Martins graduates collection for £5000 per outfit! Isabella Blow was most known for her flamboyant outfits, which were nearly always accompanied with an exquisite Philip Treacy hat.
