Zandra Rhodes : A Lifelong Love Affair with Textiles Hardback
This stunning book celebrates the work of the British fashion icon Zandra Rhodes.
Internationally recognised, 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.
First published to coincide with an exhibition at the Fashion and Textile Museum, "Zandra Rhodes - A Lifelong Love Affair with Textiles" 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 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. 'Zandra Rhodes is the most exuberant, generous and colourful fashion designer who has delighted people around the world with her work.
Her fashion designs are timeless and her teaching will influence designers for generations to come. Zandra Rhodes is a most important and original artist' - Mary Quant. 'Zandra Rhodes contributed to the fashion world like all those who have a radically personal vision connected to codes and trends, or current tastes, those who innovate and bring the kind of oxygen we need' - Christian Lacroix. 'Zandra's colourful ideas and equally colourful personality have made and will continue to make her an enduring presence' - Issey Miyake.
