Daphne Guinness on her decision to stop the auction of Isabella Blow’s wardrobe by buying every lot: "The planned sale at Christie's could only result in carnage, as souvenir seekers plundered the incredible body of work Issie had created over her life. Indeed, in many ways, the auction would not be merely a sale of clothes; it would be a sale of what was left of Issie, and the carrion crows would gather and take away her essence forever." [Vogue UK]
