The late Isabella Blow, muse to Alexander McQueen and friend of Daphne Guinness, left behind a wardrobe of couture garments some of which have never seen the light of day, until now. Designs include McQueen, Balmain, Chanel, Gareth Pugh and Rick Owens. It’s rumoured that Guinness, who owns the entire collection, will present the archive in its entirety, in some form. Known for being avant garde, it’s not clear whether the presentation will be physically on display or perhaps in film or print:
“I will have news about Isabella Blow’s collection. I am excited to be able at last to do her justice!” tweeted the digital star (@TheRealDaphne).
We’ve seen only a handful of pieces from Blow’s collection following her death. First, in the windows at Barney’s celebrating the opening of McQueen’s exhibition at the MET in New York. Followed by a few pieces on display within the museum supporting the designers life story in fashion.
Guinness has shared a few of her pieces with the public at The Museum at FIT in New York and with the calling for more McQueen by the public, the fashion favourite may be ready to share the rest–time will tell.
