Dame Zandra Rhodes' lifetime in fashion
Veteran British designer Dame Zandra Rhodes talks Drapers through her fashion life, and the lessons learned from 50 years at the forefront of fashion.
Dame Zandra Rhodes is one of the UK’s most recognisable and best-known fashion designers. Her eponymous brand pioneered the punk aesthetic and defined the style of London in the 1970s and 1980s. The label celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2019, and made a return to the London Fashion Week schedule in February with its autumn 19 collection.
In March 2019, Rhodes was announced as a lifetime patron of Graduate Fashion Week, where she will help to judge the best student collections ahead of the gala finale show on 5 June.
