The Isabella Blow: Fashion Galore! exhibition opens on 20 November at Somerset House and will showcase hundreds of pieces from the fashion muse's kooky, eclectic, designer wardrobe.

The collection, now entirely owned by Daphne Guinness, will also sit alongside iconic photographs and magazine covers celebrating the life of this influential fashion great.

Blow had an eye for fashion, she discovered and mentored designer talents such as Alexander McQueen (she bought his entire graduate collection), Philip Treacy (she was forever in one of his hats) and Julien Macdonald, styled spectacular shoots and immersed herself in the industry for 30 years.

She built an impressive CV assisting Anna Wintour at US Vogue in the 1980s, then taking on roles at Tatler, British Vogue and The Sunday Times where she was Fashion Director.

While her death in 2007 was a huge tragedy this exhibition honours the fabulous, eccentric and wonderfully risque Isabella Blow. It's not one to miss.

The exhibition is running until 2 March 2014 and you can book tickets online for £12.50 now. Here's a sneak peek at some of the work on show...
