'Over the years, whenever Issy would call me up to urge me to see someone new, I would do it because she thought it was important.' - Anna Wintour, Editor-in-Chief, American Vogue 'You were a one off, a genius friend, your own creation in a world of copycats and I will miss you for the rest of my life.' - Rupert Everett, in his eulogy at Isabella Blow's funeral 'She was original, impactful, generous-minded and spotted some of the greatest talents.' - Geordie Greig, Editor of the Evening Standard and formerly editor of Tatler 'She was the most intelligent and creative person in fashion. In many ways she was the British queen of fashion. She was intoxicating. You could never get enough of her. She was a free spirit.' - Philip Treacy 'She discovered Sophie Dahl sobbing in a doorway; she bought Alexander McQueen's entire degree show, and had Philip Treacy design her wedding hat when she married Detmar Blow in 1988 - as well as being credited with discovering Hussein Chalayan and Stella Tennant.' - Vogue 'Mourned the world over by an industry that has lost a Muse with whom there was never a dull moment.' - Daily Mail
The news of Isabella Blow’s suicide in 2007 shocked the international fashion world. A true patron of couture, she is credited with having discovered and fostered the careers of famed designers Alexander McQueen and Philip Treacy, among others, becoming their great muse, friend, and confidante. She also discovered models Stella Tennant and Sophie Dahl, yet it was images of Issie in these designers’ creations that became instantly iconic. Isabella’s aristocratic ancestry was as colorful as her manner of dress, her childhood was adventurous and, at times, tragic, and her thirty-year career in fashion was legendary.
Written with compassion, adoration, and deep insight by Detmar Blow, her devoted husband of eighteen years, in collaboration with writer Tom Sykes. Blow by Blow is, at once, an outrageous behind-the-scenes romp through the worlds of fashion and high society, and a poignantly candid view of the tortured inner life of a rare and conflicted spirit.-- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.

Isabella was a colorful character throughout her years of desparate achievments in the social and fashion world in London and of course New York.
Detmar takes us into the life style of the rich and famous in their social and castle whirl of England, mentioning many high profile names along his way.
Some parts of Detmars' recording of his life with Isabella were interesting and some wre tiresome.
We all knew that Isabella commited suicide, and knew that Detmar was leading up to this sad ending of his wife's life. I began to feel rather depressed at the whole situation, and kept wondering why Detmar continued following Isabella's wild and frustrating journey.
. Having said this, it is an interesting read for anyone who follows the happenings of high profile Fashion and Entertainment Industry. I myself just had to finish Detmars story.
She absolutely loved hats. Oh, photographs included are neat...thanks.
