Somerset House has just announced its latest exhibition in honour of the late fashion and art champion Isabella Blow. The woman who helped launch designers such as Alexander McQueen will be honoured in the retrospective Isabella Blow: Fashion Galore!

The exhibition will showcase over a hundred pieces from Blow’s personal wardrobe, famously saved from being auctioned off by her close friend Daphne Guinness, who purchased the art patron’s entire collection. Expect to see work from designers such as McQueen, Philip Treacy, Hussein Chalayan and Julien Macdonald.

Set designer Shona Heath will be creating installations for the show, which not only offers an opportunity to view extraordinary fashion pieces up close, but also to discover the life of the woman who wore them.

Isabella Blow: Fashion Galore! will run from 20 November to 2 March at Somerset House.
