“People garden, they cook … My ingredients are clothes.”

Isabella Blow

Did you catch the Fashion Blows exhibit? If you weren’t able to make it out, fear not! I snapped a few pics of the lovely outfits from Isabella Blow’s and Daphne Guinness’ wardrobes. Blow’s pieces, mostly from Alexander McQueen and Philip Treacy, were stunning! A real fashion fantasy. The most amazing part was that she wore many of these outfits in her day-to-day life, not just to fabulous fashion events. You could see clear signs of wear on the garments. These clothes were well-loved and I admire her for that. Sometimes I want to bust out my Pink Tartan gold tulle skirt for work (a $20 sample sale score!), but end up saving it for a “special occasion.”

What’s your favourite outfit? Oddly enough, my standout piece wasn’t one of Blow’s. It was Guinness’ red, black and gold embroidered McQueen mini dress from Fall/Winter 2010. I would wear it in a heartbeat!

Find inspiration in the photos for an outfit to wear to one of the fashion events listed in the calendar below. Or just put it on for your next trip to the grocery store!
