FASHION MUSEUM: Zandra Rhodes is kickin it
The Fashion and Textile Museum, the first exhibition space in London dedicated to the global fashion industry, opens in London tomorrow. Founded by legendary designer Zandra Rhodes, the museum is built on her 3000-piece collection of key pieces from Ossie Clark, Jean Muir and other designers, and housed in a converted warehouse on the south bank of the River Thames. I was one of those kids in the 70s who read mom’s Vogue and marvelled at the amazing creations from Rhodes and others–it’s exciting to think more of these fantastic clothes will be available for viewing.
