Best known for her unique ability to spot and nurture design talent, Isabella Blow lived for fashion. A fashion editor, consultant and muse, it was Blow’s extraverted dress sense that lead many to see her as the embodiment of the English eccentric.
At her funeral, friend and actor Rupert Everett said, “she was constantly dazzled by life and life was constantly dazzled by her”.
She was accredited with the discovery of fashion designer Alexander McQueen, hat designer Philip Treacy and models Sophie Dahl and Stella Tenant.
So why don’t you … seek out design genius (in whatever discipline) and do everything you can to nurture it.
