This book celebrates the work of the British fashion icon Zandra Rhodes. Internationally recognized, Zandra's designs have always been clear but creative, dramatic but graceful, bold but feminine, and her garments have a timeless quality, which makes them unmistakably a Rhodes creation. Published to coincide with an exhibition at the Fashion and Textile Museum the book highlights classics from the Rhodes collection such as the famed 'Dinosaur' coat, the Lily collections, Conceptual Chic, the Chinese series, and the rarely seen Spanish Impressions and Medieval collections.
It also showcases contemporary work from Zandra's studio, as well as examples of the great influence her style and work have had on fashion designers today. The book goes on to look at Zandra's creative process, the textile printing process and the fantastic, romantic finished product.
