Monday Morning Photo

Today’s Monday Morning Photo pays homage to Isabella Blow – a fearless and fascinating woman who truly embodied the essence of fashion. She was an ardent supporter of new talent, famously buying Alexander McQueen’s entire senior collection and setting up a studio for Philip Treacy in the basement of her home. Known for breaking sartorial boundaries, she was particularly fond of hats, once saying:

“Hats make you look good and feel beautiful. You can wear them for lunch, a wedding or for breakfast. It is like taking drugs: it is more fun and less dangerous. You don’t have to look like an old bat. You can be a crow and look like a hen.”

We hope her spirit inspires you in the week ahead!
