Beauty fashion girl vol 28

Blow, one of the industry's great eccentrics who launched the careers of top models and designers, died at the age of 48 in May. She had been renowned for helping discover Philip Treacy, one of the world's most famous milliners, and launching the career of British designer Alexander McQueen.

The second half of designer Varun Bahl's Saturday night show at the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week included a picture slideshow on the fashion icon and featured models in chic black dresses with elaborate flowery headgear.

Blow, who attended the fashion week in New Delhi last year, had also been known for wearing unusual hats.

"She enriched us all with her presence, her effortless magnetism," Bahl said in a statement. "Isabella Blow is a memory to ignite us all, exhorting us to live knowingly, to treasure our moments of happiness as we pass through life."
