Blow

look and listen. i think the drawing and the song match, increasingly I am finding myself basing work on pieces of music, which are played on repeat until it’s done. 

Isabella Blow had a really interesting but sad life. I like her a lot because she is not a typical ‘fashion icon’, and if anything she was made a fashion casualty, and an example of how cut throat and cruel the industry is. Daphne Guiness said that:

“She [Blow] was upset that [Alexander] McQueen didn’t take her along when he sold his brand to Gucci. Once the deals started happening, she fell by the wayside. Everybody else got contracts, and she got a free dress” This was further supported in a 2002 interview with Tamsin Blanchard, who claimed it was Blow who brokered the deal in which Gucci purchased McQueen’s label.
