An intriguing exhibition, which chronicles the use of undergarments
and under-clothing structures, which transformed body shape
to accord with fashion dictates.
On display are items from the fourteenth century to the present,
which were worn by men and those worn by women
to diminish or enhance body parts or overall contour.

Isabella Blow: Fashion Galore!
Somerset House, London

Isabella Blow was a sparkling luminary on the international fashion stage.
In the early 80s she was assistant to Anna Wintour, editor of US Vogue.
Throughout her career, she was fashion director
at several British publications.
She had an innate flair for fashion and
possessed an incredibly unique wardrobe as proof.
Yet, it was her commitment to mentoring and launching
then emerging talents:
which was her greatest gift.
The exhibition examines her life in fashion and
displays an extensive array
from her creative clothing collection.
