For the fashion enthusiast who sees glamour and femininity in technicolor, we at C.Madeleine’s suggest becoming acquainted with the effervescent English designer, Zandra Rhodes. With a fervent focus on printed textile design throughout her Art School years, since entering the fashion world in the late 1960s, Rhodes’ flair for intense color and unique ethnic inspired prints quickly became her celebrated namesake. While incorporating her bright and eccentric prints upon dramatic silhouettes that were fit for royalty, Rhodes’ pieces ultimately caught the attention of such style mavens as Diana, Princess of Wales, Jackie Onassis, Elizabeth Taylor, and ‘Queen’ front liner Freddie Mercury.
With decades of award-winning designs under her fiercely fabulous belt, Ms. Rhodes’ was questioned by authors Monsef, Safer, and de Niet on which masterpiece she holds with the highest adoration. Featured in their impressively illustrated book, ‘My Favourite Dress’, Rhodes’ honors her famed Ayers Rock print of 1974 as the treasured choice. The popular design that was amongst the closet’s of one Jackie Onassis and sister, Princess Lee Rodiwell, can now be yours to own and cherish for all your fashion forward days to come.
