‘I’m a walking billboard. That’s my pleasure.’ Isabella Blow

Featuring looks from Alexander McQueen, Philip Treacy, Hussein Chalayan, Julien Macdonald and more, the private collection of late fashion visionary Isabella Blow will be on display for a strictly limited exclusive season at the Powerhouse Museum, Sydney.

English stylist, editor and muse Isabella Blow championed British fashion, nurturing the careers of many designers in the 1990s and beyond. Isabella Blow: A Fashionable Life will provide a rare chance to see over 45 of her outfits comprising clothing, hats, shoes and jewellery from more than 20 of the world’s top fashion designers, photographs from key fashion photographers and hats from Philip Treacy’s personal archives.

Presented by the Centre for Fashion.
