1972 Zandra Rhodes Hand-Painted Indian Feathers & Lillies Silk Caftan 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 prints, and this piece really lets her brilliance shine through. The garment is fashioned from four hand-painted sheer silk-chiffon panels pieces together. I love the flirty fringed-feather sleeves and high-neck bodice. The "easy-to-wear" caftan silhouette is so flattering. The draped carwash skirting is so fresh and strikingly modern. The pictures speak for themselves. Rhodes' exotic originality makes her work among the most copied in the fashion world today. Measurements Bust:Free Size Waist:up to 30 inches Hips:Free Size Total Length:58 inches This designer garment is in excellent condition with no rips,stains or holes. It slips over the head with side metal-snaps near neckline. This item is over 30 years old and is truly exquisite. Very unique, collectible and rare!
