I'd like to say how sorry I am to hear of Isabella Blow's untimely death.
I met her only a few times through my then flatmate- she came to our house in Camden and I accompanied him to hers on Theed Street
. I thought she was incredibly glamorous, but she was also very down to earth and friendly, showing me her shoe collection in her bedroom all in see through display cases like pieces of art, and her cardboard dining table and chairs that she had bought because they looked amazing, even though if you sat on them they'd break!
She was I guess, what you would call a true English Eccentric- I can't imagine her being anything other than British, and I think that people like that brighten up life.
My thoughts go to her family.
