From the Publisher. This book celebrates the work of the British fashion icon Zandra Rhodes. Internationally recognised, Zandra's designs have always been clear but creative, dramatic but graceful bold but feminine, and her garments have a timeless quality, which makes them unmistakably Rhodes creations.

Published to coincide with an exhibition at the Fashion and Textile Museum, Zandra Rhodes: A Lifelong Love Affair with Textiles highlights classics from the Rhodes collection such as the famed 'Dinosaur' coat, the Lily collections, Conceptual Chic, the Chinese series, and the rarely seen Spanish Impressions and Mediaeval collections. It also showcases contemporary work from Zandra's studio, as well as examples of the great influence her style and work have on fashion designers today, The hook goes on to look at Zandra's creative process, the textile printing process and the fantastic, romantic finished product.

Zandra has always been a big influence for me—my favorite. I collect her incredible printed chiffon pieces from the early 1970s. I love the fantasy of her clothes.
