I could go into a biographical synopsis about what Zandra Rhodes is all about but the facts are this: She has dressed some of the best, her prints are absolutely stunning and the woman is fierce. She has that same Betsey Johnson qualities that I love; fun, quirky and does what she wants.
Dude, Zandra even does Needlepoint Patterns and puppet designs for the Summer Olympics...that is fairly awesome, is it not? I love the designer that has a robust portfolio, has explored many different avenues and just totally is rocking life. I am so glad that not only did I discover Zandra Rhodes through Mass Art but that I may have the chance to hear her speak in the near future as it is something that I have heard rumblings about at school. This whole going back to design school is starting to have it's perks!
