Beginning her career as the assistant of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, Blow later returned to her native England, where she served as a fashion director for Tatler and The Sunday Times Style magazines. But it was her friendships with and nurturing of emerging talent for which Blow is remembered, having helped to launch the careers of the likes of McQueen and Treacy by investing in their work early on.
