+ it’s all over the web – Isabella Blow died yesterday


New York Times

in the Herald Tribune she was described as

one of the most imaginative, inventive and intelligent forces in fashion – and in her iconic self a work of art – has died in England.

Philip Treacy had made Isabella his muse throughout his designing career, in a tribute said of her

She was a great champion of young people. She came from the establishment but she was a punk at heart. Her love was talent, rather than money. Her ethos was beauty and elegance. And her encouragement was rare.

Thank you for ‘bettering our lives by exposing us to creativity’

+ this week coolhunter launched it’s Australian edition of the site, the first international edition of many to come

+ Scotland is about to launch it’s first design festival – The Six Cities Design Festival. More information here

+ nice design but perhaps a bit too close to the fruit loop by Australia’s own Lisa Vincitorio – the first designer to be picked up by Alessi whilst still a student!

See article about her success here
