Isabella Blow at Somerset House

There is an absolute must see show on at Somerset House at the moment for anyone with the slightest interest in fashion, textile techniques, iconic imagery, etc. In my opinion it's the best show they have put on for a long time. You can get up close and personal with fashion and hat designs from some of the true greats.: Philip Tracy, Alexander McQueen, John Galliano, Mr Pearl, Shaun Leane, the list goes on and on. Along with this, there is interesting information and film about her life, from her early years up to the end. You also get a chance to see graduadtion shows from McQueen and Galliano.
At the end you will find fabulous books as usual, but also stunning posters and postcards photographed by Nick Knight.
