Isabella Blow - ICON

Tribute to Blow

" keep everyone away from me. They say, Oh, can I kiss you? I say, No, thank you very much. That's why I've worn the hat. Goodbye. I don't want to be kissed by all and sundry. I want to be kissed by the people I love."

Stunishing Isabella Brow... English magazine editor (19th November 1958- 7th May 2007) left us as an admirable inspiration and international style icon.
