The Isabella Blow Foundation

Louise Wilson
1962 - 2014

Trustee, tour de force and friend.

Louise was known for her exacting teaching style and fearless approach. Revered by her students and within the wider fashion industry, she will be affectionately remembered and sorely missed.

This charitable Foundation seeks to honour the memory of Isabella Blow, to support aspiring art and fashion students and to facilitate further research in the fields of depression and mental health.


  1. To promote British fashion and encourage young and aspiring art and fashion students.
  2. To create bursary and scholarship funds, enabling students to develop their aspirations and careers in the art and fashion worlds.
  3. To develop, curate and establish a public exhibition of Isabella’s clothing. The social, cultural and historical significance of the collection cannot be underestimated and the Foundation would seek to exhibit the collection at a number of venues around the world.
  4. To raise awareness and allocate financial resources to charities working within the areas of depression and mental health.
