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.'
“Above all, remember that the most important thing you can take anywhere is not a Gucci bag or French-cut jeans; it's an open mind”
