Isabella Blow exhibition at the Powerhouse Museum

Today I had a pleasure of visiting the Isabella Blow exhibition at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney. My friend had booked tickets for a high tea/exhibition viewing day. 

 

The exhibition was lovely! The designs were amazing! A few favorites are shown in the photos below.  

 Hat by Philip Treacy, the kimono dress by Alexander McQueen for Isabella Blow.

I loved the above kimono outfit... I would wear it all! Even the eye piece! Stunning!!!  

 

 Possibly my favorite "wearable" outfit from the exhibition... This black matador suit. I love everything about it.

I only wish the exhibition was bigger, and had more designs to view. I also think sometimes having a plain boring background isn't really what the exhibition is all about... They should have gone with a bit of colour and fun... After all, from what I gather her taste was a bit out there!!!

 

 My favorite hat in the exhibition.

I love that even though her clothes and shoes were so delicate and beautiful she still wore them.... She wore them to death! There were holes and tears and cigarette burns on them, but she wore them, and after all, beautiful clothes such as these should not be left in the wardrobe collecting dust!
