    :unsure: regardless that i absolutely respect Zandra just for being herself i never really liked her 'design' style :ninja:

    ps: This journalist sounds a bit confused... Zandra is certainly not 'Queen of Punk' ... Vivienne Westwood is. (think McLaren & SexPistols)

    Yes, Vivienne Westwood was most certainly the Queen of Punk as in the actual punk-rock movement in the eighties. Maybe the journo is referring to more recent punks like Tracy Emin?

    Indeed, 'uncrowned' because she does not deserve.

    You're terrible, you know that, Strawberry Daiquiri? You're always making me go off topic...

    HorribleOffTopicNessThatLenaWillKillMeFor: But didn't Westwood start designing before Zandra Rhodes?

    Designing as in matchstick people with funny hats, with fat dresses, with Crayola or the happy buzzing with the middle man and the consumer?

    :lol: thats somehow ON topic your highness, so no, Zandra was there ages before Vivienne started out, i bet she's been designing since late sixties or something, she was at her top during late seventies (dressing London's love generation) :flower:

    I ahve always lvoed zandra, btu she is nto punk,s he played with punk but she is not punk.

    Actually johnny Rotten and Vivienne have always hated her, in Johny's book he talks about how he hated her beging called punk.

    Hello :)

    Well, I don't think Zandra was "punk". She was very "glam", very "rock glam".

    Let's not forget that Freddie Mercury (the Freddie from the 70s, the glam one, with long hair and no moustache) almost only had Zandra clothes! B)

    Love, Phoebus

    i don't know enough about her to have my own opinion...

    i know she's english, eccentric and very well-respected for her innovative designs...i think she was big in the sixties...around the same time as mary quant, no? not sure, but i've always heard real fashion insiders speak highly of her work in the past...

    ?...
