Two of our interns took the chance to visit The Isabella Blow exhibition at Somerset House last week. They wanted to share their day and write about how amazing the exhibition was.
‘Yesterday we had the chance to visit the fashion exhibition” Isabella Blow: Fashion Galore!” at Somerset House. The exhibition is presented by the Isabella Blow Foundation and Central Saint Martins celebrating her extraordinary and unique wardrobe. Isabella was known for her eye-catching and artistic way to style. This is the main focus of the exhibition, which presents over a hundred pieces from her incredible and eccentric collection.
It is dominated by pieces from her most favoured designers such as Alexander McQueen, Manolo Blahnik and Philip Treacy.
Philip Treacy’s creative hat designs were especially fascinating. They come in every colour and form that a human can imagine. The best example for that is perhaps “Marilyn’s lips” hat .
It reminds us of Isabella Blow’s love for red lips. Even her letters and business cards are signed with a deep red kiss.
The exhibition ends with an amazing and extravagant fashion show of Alexander McQueen and Philip Treacy.
Through our trip to Somerset House we came to the conclusion that clothes, no matter how special and unusual they are, should be worn.’
We are looking for a fit model to attend fitting sessions in the annascholz studio. In the two-hour long fittings, the fit model tries on the collection samples, so the designers and pattern cutters can adjust the fit, drape and visual appearance of the garments by pinning, measuring and cutting. The fit model might be asked to comment on comfort or fit as required. This is not a photo shoot job.
The successful candidate is a well-proportioned size 18 with the exact measurements specified in the ad below, able to travel to our studio near Willesden Junction in London once or twice a week during the months of June, July, August and December, January, February and comfortable to stand in high heels for two hours.
‘I thought it might bring a bit of sunshine into these dull February days if I shared a picture of me in my favourite Anna Scholz Palm Print Maxi Dress. This photo was taken on Barry Island in South Wales (where ‘Gavin and Stacey’ is filmed!) However, in this amazing dress I certainly felt more ‘Bahamas’ than ‘Barry’
