RIP Mad Hatter

Rest in piece Isabella Blow.

Possessor of one of the best names ever. Style maverick. Talent spotter (I mean Philip Treacy, Alexander McQueen & Hussein Chalayan - that's quite some trifecta). Fashion eccentric. Millinery consumer ne plus ultra.

Anyone who played mentor to Philip Treacy must have been a mega-talent as I believe his hat creations are beyond this world. I LURVE them! Look what he's done for the QUEEN the last few years. And even horse-faced Camilla Parker-Bowles, Duchess of Cornhole, I mean..Cornwall...looks pretty spiffy in a TREACY hat.

Isabella Blow sounds like a troubled soul; most creative types are. God rest her spirit. Thanks for sharing this news.
