1975 Zandra Rhodes Emerald Green Beaded Hand-Painted Silk Chiffon Wrap 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 hand-painted green sheer silk-chiffon with the matching silk-jersey underslip. I love the wide angel sleeves which frame the bodice beautifully. The flapperesque wrap drop-waist is so flattering to the figure. The beaded, scalloped hemline is 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 Underslip Bust:36-37 inches Hips:38 inches Total Length:42 inches Wrap-Dress Free Size due to design Total Length:47 inches This Zandra Rhodes designer ensemble is in excellent condition with no rips,stains or holes. It closes with a draw-string wrap. This item is over 30 years old and is truly exquisite. Very unique, collectible and rare.
