1980's Zandra Rhodes Purple Silk Hand Painted One-Shoulder Dress
Zandra Rhodes was one of the British designers who put London at the forefront of the international fashion scene in the 1970's. Her designs are considered creative statements, dramatic but graceful, bold but feminine. Zandra is renowned for her use of color, and this piece really lets her brilliance shine through. The garment is fashioned from fully-lined, rhinestone, hand-painted, beaded royal-purple sheer silk-chiffon. I adore the wide magenta-pink textured satin band which frames the asymmetric one-shoulder bodice perfectly. Rhodes' exotic originality makes her work among the most copied in the fashion world today.
