1970's Zandra Rhodes Beaded Hand-Painted Illusion Silk Chiffon Dress

About

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 beaded and hand-painted dove-gray sheer silk-chiffon. I love the low-cut plunge sheer-illusion which framed the bodice beautifully. The pictures speak for themselves. Rhodes' exotic originality makes her work among the most copied in the fashion world today.
