Lauren Goldstein Crowe: Isabella Blow: A Life in Fashion
In 2007 the news of Isabella Blow's suicide made headlines around the world - but there is more to her story than this tragic end. A supporter of milliner Philip Treacy and the woman who discovered designer Alexander McQueen, Blow was a spark, an electrical impulse that set imaginations racing and a unique individual who pushed others to create their best work. Her fascination with Fashion began early, as did a willingness to wear - and say - things to amuse and shock. She began her career in New York as assistant to Anna Wintour at Vogue. Over time she found fame for her work, yet it wasn't enough to assuage her devastating feelings of inadequacy. Still, in her darkest moments, even as she began a series of suicide attempts and prolonged hospital stays, Blow retained her wicked sense of humour, making her friends laugh as they struggled to help. Lauren Goldstein Crowe has written a superbly entertaining narrative, wrapping anecdotes of Isabella's antics around a candid, insightful portrayal of a woman whose thirst for the fantastical ultimately became irreconcilable with life in the real world.
In 1937, on the threshold of Nazi Germany's war on the world, Dietrich Bonhoeffer wrote what turned out to be one of the most influential books of the century, The Cost of Discipleship. In it, he challenged the flabby faith and compromises of German Christians, famously writing, "When Christ calls a man he bids him come and die." Now, seventy-three years after the book was first published, Jon Walker writes Costly Grace: A Contemporary View of Dietrich Isabella Blow: A Life in Fashion download epub Bonhoeffer's The Cost of Discipleship. Walker brings to a new generation the timeless message of Bonhoeffer against the background of today's political upheaval and societal change and what it means to those who claim to follow Christ's teachings. You'll enjoy having these glistening little fellas around! A caterpillar, bumblebee, ladybug, dragonfly, and 6 other creatures are harmless enough; and the pleasant smiles on their faces are likely to make you grin as well. Apply the cute critters to lunch boxes, notebooks, school projects, and other flat surfaces.
