1970s Zandra Rhodes Pink Sik Screened Silk Evening Gown

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Brilliantly designed and silk screened in the 1970s, comes Zandra Rhodes multicolor pink evening gown. Delicate and beautiful.

We are amazed by how she does it by using both her referential genius and her love of textile and paint.

The ethereal nature of both the silk and shape and cut of the dress is so very Edwardian (a period Rhodes seems to embrace throughout much of her career).

At the same time, Rhodes both sees and embraces the future with the incoming cultural shifts that become staples of the 1980's. She uses almost neon pinks and purples in the gown, both colors we envision when we think of Bowie's hair and make up or Elton John's glasses and lenses. She foreshadows the "ewer women" look by building large shoulder and a small waist and hip.

The dress emphasizes some of Rhodes' signature design details with its silk, ethereal sleeves, striking colors, and her amazing hand with the paint brush.

The sleeves and skirt are asymmetrical in design, with beaded trim along the hems. The dress fastens in back via snaps in the lining and loop-and-button closures on the top layer.
