Isabella Blow Auction

Over 90 Alexander McQueen outfits, 50 Philip Treacy hats and shoes by Manolo Blahnik belonging to the late fashion icon Isabella Blow are to be auctioned by Christie’s in September this year. The Tatler fashion editor committed suicide in late 2007 and was immortalised for her flamboyant millinery and her eye for discovering Alexander McQueen and Sophie Dahl.

“What we have is unique — it shows that McQueen really deserves his place in fashion history and that Isabella was there before anyone else, she saw what was good so far ahead of the game,” said Patricia Frost, director of fashion and textiles at Christie’s in London.

The auction will be held by the auction house in London, South Kensington, on 15 September 2010 at 10:30
