It was watching her mother trying on her pink hat that Isabella Blow (1958-2007) recalled as both her fondest memory and the catalyst for her obsession with fashion. Whatever its weird psychological alchemy, that pastel headgear certainly stirred Blow deeply: She became an influential, impassioned British fashion editor, an international style icon, and the muse of designers and models. Even wracked by depression and the changing gusts of fashion, this tormented maverick pushed aesthetic boundaries; but invariably she suffered from the resultant friction. This coffee-table book tribute, complete with 180 color photographs, displays this singular Isabella on the grand, confessional scale that she herself always sought.
