Isabella Blow – limited edition lobster necklace

Finally, finally, I got down to Somerset House today to see the Isabella Blow, Fashion Galore exhibition – just in the nick of time because it closes on Sunday March 2.

I’ve never seen so many pairs of Manolos under one roof.

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

I had to rush off after spending 90 minutes drooling over her wardrobe, the insane Philip Treacy hat collection and all those Alexander McQueen pieces – but it’s probably a good job I did have to run or my bank account would have been £40 lighter…now I just have to resist the temptation to go back down to the exhibition gift shop with my birthday money (yes, even at the age of 40, it still happened) and treating myself to Tatty Devine’s fishy pink treat.
