The Isabella Blow fashion exhibition hits Sydney's Powerhouse Museum this week - and to celebrate we have a sneak preview of some of the pieces on show 

ICYMI, the honourable Daphne Guinness is bringing the incredible wardrobe of late friend Isabella Blow to Sydney this week, in a grand exhibition presented by the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences. Isabella Blow: A Fashionable Life offers a rare, fascinating glimpse at the stylist and muse's most treasured garments - pieces by luminaries such as Alexander McQueen, Givenchy and Phillip Treacy - which the average individual could only dream of wearing.

Last week, we were lucky to chat to the curator of the exhibition Shonagh Marshall, who has worked with the Isabella Blow Foundation since Guinness bought Blow's collection in 2010. Here, she shares two of the three pieces which have been selected for display in Westfield Sydney this week and the story behind each one.  Plus, we give you a sneak peek at some of the highlights of Isabella Blow: A Fashionable Life.
