Zandra Rhodes has saved all garment originals from her very first collection in 1969 to the present day. It is a unique series which also includes all Zandra Rhodes’ sketchbooks and textile designs and inspirational drawings. As such it is an irreplaceable documented designer statement of around 40 years of textile design and fashion trends and an essential reference for museums worldwide, which hold examples of Zandra Rhodes’ work.

Safely stored in the Fashion and Textile Museum it is partially catalogued, awaiting requisite finance for the completion of a Digital Archives project to make it available to students and designers worldwide.
