Blow By Blow: The Story of Isabella Blow:

Written in loving memory by her husband Detmar Blow with Tom Sykes

The Back Story: “The news of Isabella Blow’s suicide in 2007 shocked the international fashion world for whom she was a legendary figure. As a true patron of couture, she is credited with having discovered and fostered the careers of famed designers Alexander McQueen and Philip Treacy, among others, and was recognized the world over as their great muse, friend and confidant. While she also discovered exquisite models Stella Tennant and Sophie Dahl, it was images of Issie in these designers’ creations that became instantly iconic. The real power of Blow by Blow lies in its portrayal of a courageous woman who tried passionately and often to escape a legacy of depression that ultimately proved insurmountable.”

I truly enjoyed this book and I would definitely recommend it – I however must warn readers that it is truly a tragic story and you will be emotionally effected!
