    Zandra was contemporaneous with the other famous ' flower power ' designer -
    Thea Porter . :flower: :flower: :flower: :flower:

    Zandra MAY be dated now , but she has opened a fashion museum , south of the river , in London , after a great deal of difficulty . :rolleyes:

    She certainly needs credit and applause for this feat in these difficult times . :heart:

    this is getting a little rediculous now [/b][/quote]
    OMG I can't believe someone actually said that, finally!

    I've always wanted to but I didn't want to sound like an *******.

    I am totally a grammar nazi.

    Doesn't a young person always have a particular quirk or eccentricity that is deliberately adopted to mark himself or herself off from the rest ? ;)

    It really MUST take some effort to transpose letters like this , UNLESS there is a special secret computer programme to do this !!!

    Give Spacemiu 5 or 6 years , and he'll be as pedantic as you wish and the idiosyncratic spelling will have disappeared !!! B)

    kit- i know we're totally going off topic, but i used to use draw a rainbow with coloured pencil at the top of all of my social studies assignments... :lol: ...my teacher thought it was so funny that he started drawing things next to my grade as if to reply...we never spoke about it...

    you just brought that memory back...yes, young people definitely do quirky things... :rolleyes:
    and look at me now?!... :lol:

    Incidentally , Zandra asked a huge number of designers to donate their favourite dress , and if my memory serves me right , a certain TF was one of the few to refuse her . :angry:

    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 ..

    I think zandra rhodes is definitely getting a new surge of popularity. I was watching sex and the city last night and noticed carrie had a zandra rhodes dress.

    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..
