Who: Designer muse, lover of millinery, and former fashion director of Tatler
When: Planned for September 2011 but stopped by Daphne Guinness in July 2010
Where: Christie's, London
What: In a column for Financial Times, Guinness said she stopped the sale of Blow's legendary collection of couture, high fashion, and quirky hats because "in many ways, the auction would not [have been] merely a sale of clothes; it would [have been] a sale of what was left of Issie, and the carrion crows would gather and take away her essence forever."
What we'd have bid on: Any of the fascinators created for her by Blow's personal friend Philip Treacy
