Manuela Martorelli reports on Isabella Blow at Somerset House which opens to the public today

Dear Shaded Viewers

Isabella Blow's exhibition  at Somerset House opening  today to public is literally a jump into the world of this visionary editor, collector, talent scouter and more.

The extensive collection of clothes, hats, shoes – obviously mainly by her two beloved Alexander McQueen and Philip Treacy – brought into light by the curator Alistair O'Neill together with few video-interviews, publications and photographs, depict a story, a piece of life, an attitude. Surely a source of inspiration.


All my best
