GREAT BLOW

SURREAL APPEAL
ISABELLA BLOW
Miguel Reveriego

Fashion icon Isabella Blow ne Isabella Delves Broughton, was a fashion editor, consultant, and fashion muse to hat designer Philip Treacy. A nurturer of young talent, she is credited with discovering Alexander McQueen.

Tragedy touched her life early with the drowning of her brother John in the family swimming pool at the age of two. With her parents divorce at the age of fourteen, an age when young women are at the apex of their teenage angst, her mother left - as Blow had recalled, with little more than a handshake. "Who does that?" It's very british.

Blow was an assistant to Anna Wintour and Andre Leon Talley  at American Vogue, and worked for Michael Roberts, fashion director of Tatler.
