Editorial Reviews

The originality and genius of Zandra Rhodes is recognised around the world. Having kept complete archives of her every drawing, print and original garment (nearly 2,000 of them) she lays out a captivating array of samples before us and presents her methods with clarity and straightforward enthusiasm. It is a magnificent, lavishly illustrated record of a three-dimensional artist whose impact on haute couture has been immense and who will no doubt continue to beguile us (always several fashion steps ahead) far into the future.

Format: Hardcover
As a student of Art and Fashion I discovered this treasure in the college library and borrowed it relentlessly. Only the designs of the late Erte have given me such awe of creation. This book truly showcases the essence of Zandra's textile and clothing masterpieces. By way of photographs, sketches,diary, and travelogue we're given colorful insight to the thought processes supporting her works of design. Though Rhodes flourished in 70's/80's Britain, she was one of the first designers to really tap into the current theme of multicuturalism. She takes the world around her and transforms it magically to her own artform. Anyone interested in Fashion, Art, or Design will appreciate this book's concept.

Format: Hardcover
When I was just getting started in wearable art, I happened across this book, then only available in the library. I was transported into Zandra Rhodes's creative vision and found her an incredible inspiration for my own work which ensued. One thing which instantly set Rhodes apart was that she had to be in on the ground floor of the creation of the fabric, not just the design of the clothing. This mirrored my own interest, as working with someone else's fabric creation seemed to doom the process from the start. I can't say that my own subsequent work looked anything like Rhodes's work but being let in on the way she thinks and creates, seeing her ideas come to life, that was what was important. I cannot recommend this book highly enough to anyone interested in ornamental art or fashion design.
