Isabella Blow’s collection has gone on display in London

The exhibition, created with the Isabella Blow Foundation and Central Saint Martins, opened last week and runs until 2 March 2014. The show, curated by Alistair O’Neill with Shonagh Marshall and designed by the architectural firm Carmody Groarke, features Blow’s personal collection of more than 100 rare designer items, including many of Treacy’s most dramatic hats and some of McQueen’s earliest designs.

“The decision to put Isabella’s wardrobe on display was a natural progression; it felt like what she would have wanted,” Guinness told Vogue. “I bought the collection because I couldn’t bear for it to be dispersed; it was her life’s work – her legacy. What better way of celebrating that legacy than allowing the world to view it?”
