Blow were invited by Kent Baker to his book launch and photography exhibition – Inferno Alexander McQueen. In 1996 McQueen’s ‘Dante’ collection, eerily showcased at Hawksmoor’s Christchurch Spitalfields, confirmed his emergence from a St Martins Graduate into the visionary force in fashion we know him as now. Photographer, Kent Baker, one of McQueen’s intimate circle of friends, was backstage to capture the excitement and baroque theatre of the evening. The results are intimate portraits and reportage from a seminal moment in fashion history.
Shot entirely on film, all the large format black and white photographs are shown in public for the first time at The Gallery At Foyles, Charing Cross Road, London 20 March-3 May. Inferno – Alexander McQueen by Kent Baker is £20 on Lawrence King.
Blow hit the Kings Road, Chelsea, once again for the launch of illustrator Daisy De Villeneuve’s latest book. ‘I Should Have Said’. Wryly observed snippets and quotes with Daisy’s signature cool, felt-pen portraits sum up the pitfalls of the dating game for the modern girl. Daisy signed copies for designer Philip Colbert of the Rodnik Band, photographer Valerie Phillips and beardy artist and illustrator Rob Ryan
Previous client, Iris van Herpen showed her beautiful AW/15 collection at Paris Fashion Week. Models transformed into raw minerals and crystals, stalactites and cobwebs and other things you would find in a cave, which wowed the audience.
Blow sipped Prosecco alongside model Jade Parfitt and actress Sienna Guillory at the launch exhibition for Gary Wallis’ new book ‘McQueen Backstage : Early Shows’ (Big Smile Publishing). Photographer Gary was friends with McQueen from his Central St Martins days and the backstage photos from the early catwalk shows are interspersed with intimate personal portraits of the designer. The book launch coincides with V&A’s ‘Savage Beauty’ exhibition of McQueen’s life’s work, almost 5 years after his death. The ‘Early Shows’ exhibition is at Proud Chelsea, Kings Rd, London until 5th April.
