Isabella Blow & Feather Hats

LuluComment

Isabella Blow- the modern style icon, passed away earlier this month.
    She was best known for the whimsical hats that she sported everywhere.
    The majority of her hats were designed by Philip Treacy.
    In 2002 their relationship was highlighted in an exhibition titled "When Philip met Isabella" which featured sketches and photographs of Isabella wearing Philip's designs.
     A book of the same title was released in March of 2003.
