What story a wardrobe can tell? What remains when you are dead? Olivier Saillard, curator of Musée Galliera, worked with Tilda Swinton in the Impossible Wardrobe exhibition, a series of happenings in which the actress wore several garments from different eras, establishing a dialogue with fashion. "Impossible wardrobe" defines Isabella Blow Fashion Galore's wardrobe, another exhibition gathering and celebrating  her extravaganza life and priceless wardrobe. The Somerset House exhibition is certainly an awswer to Olivier Saillard's question about Fashion. What remains is not a ghostly dusty wardrobe, but it tells the story of a woman and her unique relationship with designers such as Alexander McQueen, Philip Treacy, Manolo Blahnik, Hussein Chalayan and many more... Isabella Blow is still alive and she will inspire designers for a long time because she was undubitably a fashion hero!
