‘To survive for 50 years in the push and pull of the fashion world is no mean feat. To remain an independent spirit, ploughing your distinctive furrow while the winds of change swirl about you, is an extraordinary one. Zandra Rhodes is one such extraordinary designer.’
– Dennis Nothdruft, Head of Exhibitions

We are excited to announce that Dame Zandra Rhodes will be joining the Museum team for a glass of fizz at this exclusive meet and greet event. Enjoy the first opportunity to meet Zandra and preview Zandra Rhodes: 50 Years of Fabulous before the exhibition opens to the public.

Zandra will be on hand to sign her brand new, hot-off-the-press book, Zandra Rhodes: 50 Fabulous Years in Fashion, £30, published by Yale University Press to coincide with the exhibition. The perfect accompaniment, the book is a celebration of Zandra’s extraordinary body of work and distinguished career in fashion.

The acclaimed British designer 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.

In celebration of fifty years of the Zandra Rhodes’ label, the Fashion and Textile Museum presents Zandra Rhodes: 50 Years of Fabulous Highlighting 100 key looks, as well as 50 original textiles, this comprehensive exhibition explores five decades of the distinguished career of a British design legend.

Purchase the book, Zandra Rhodes: 50 Fabulous Years in Fashion, with your ticket and collect on arrival at the event. All tickets include a glass of fizz which can be enjoyed while viewing the exhibition.
