In celebration of 50 years of the Zandra Rhodes’ label, this comprehensive exhibition explores five decades of the distinguished career of a British design legend.
The acclaimed British designer Dame Zandra Rhodes DBE founded her eponymous fashion house in 1969 with a small collection. Her prints were Pop Art-infused commentaries on the world of Sixties Britain; the designer felt that there was inherent structure within the pattern that could work with and enhance the shape and construction of a dress. With this concept as a starting point and with her distinctive approach to cut and form, the house of Zandra Rhodes soon became one of the most recognisable labels in London.
This retrospective will highlight 100 key looks, as well as 50 original textiles.
