  • Working closely with the curatorial team and the Isabella Blow Foundation, my role was to help create methods of displaying Isabella Blow’s fashion editorial work within the exhibition. This entailed familiarizing myself with Blow’s surviving wardrobe and taking photographs of the items to accompany an essay by Professor Caroline Evans within the exhibition catalogue, which included images by Nick Knight. I was also commissioned to create, develop and install a large scale digital projection of Blow to illustrate the theme of biography in the opening room of the exhibition.
