BLOW BY BLOW

Genre: Drama
Written by Jean Bergantini Grillo, Directed by Jen Forcino

 

BLOW by BLOW, a new play based on the spirited life and tragic death of British style icon Isabella Blow, premieres at the 11th Annual Midtown International Theatre Festival.

Born into an aristocratic family, Isabella Blow reinvented herself into a demanding muse, artistic force -- and confirmed bitch. As editor of British Vogue, she discovered Treacy, Alexander McQueen and other designers, became renowned for her wild attire and unique hats, but couldn’t conquer the demons overtaking her soul. She took her own life at age 48 in 2007, three years before McQueen met a similar fate. 

BLOW by BLOW not only showcases Blow’s dashing wardrobe, but also brings out the wit, humor and humanity of this woman who was ultimately destroyed by her desperate need to feel beautiful.
