I just found out that Zandra Rhodes has been doing costuming for the opera for several seasons now... so I thought it would be fun to revive this overall thread about her work. Here is the link to her website: http://www.zandrarhodes.com and recent news at http://www.playbillarts.com/news/article/6320.html.

And some 1970s pieces that I discovered:

Hum ... I dont think Zandra as punk designer ... opposite Westwood .. she softened the hardcore punk image and kinda de-punkified it all .. twas the aesthetic .. thats what her collections responded to imho ..

rom the late 1960s Rhodes made screen printed felt coats with immense flared and circular panels. This coat combines 'Knitted Circle' fabric used for the yoke with a pattern called 'Diamonds and Roses' for the skirt. It was part of the costume of actress Irene Worth in the Royal Shakespeare Company's production of the play Tiny Alice staged at the Aldwych Theatre, London, in 1970.

Printed chiffon kaftan with hood

In 1969, Rhodes created a set of textiles whose motifs were taken from knitting and embroidery stitches, called 'Knitted Circle'. She then learnt how to cut patterns in order to produce her own clothes. She based the shape of the clothes on the textile print:
'So my first ever collection was born. It mainly featured the 'Knitted Circle' print. I had designed in a circle, now I cut in circles and at last the creative circle was complete. I made swirling, dramatic shapes with no concessions to the saleable, the acceptable or the ordinary. The true Rhodes style came into being.'

I recently saw a picture of a dress she did in one of those "Whos Who of Fashion Design" books at the local Borders: basic pattern w/ tacky colors & safety-pins, and costume-ish make-up on the models, which immediately brought to mind Heatherette..
