Zandra Rhodes: Fashion Designer

Recently, I attended a lecture at the Mingei Museum here in San Diego. The topic? A retrospective of Zandra Rhodes work, and Zandra was the speaker. The Mingei currently has an exhibit of Zandra's work which is utterly fantastic.

Zandra spoke of her career and shared images of her work, her inspiration and the various fabrics she has designed and used in her clothing.

After her talk, Zandra took questions from the audience. The best question was "What do you wear to the grocery store, and what would you wear if you were to go to the Oscars?" Zandra answered, that she wears comfort clothes such as jeans, etc., to the grocery store, and that, actually, she was going to the Oscars, and she would be wearing most likely, the same wonderful full flare-legged pants she was wearing with a top and yellow hat.

Below are some shots taken during and after Zandra's lecture.
