Zandra Rhodes Launches Handbag Collection A/W10

I was quite excited about this launch as I was really looking forward to meeting Zandra Rhodes – she’s so cool! This is Zandra’s her first handbag collection for A/W10 at the at the Mandeville Hotel in London. The bags are distinctive with a bright pink lining and with rose gold hardware. It’s hard to beat the price point as the bags start at ¬£30!

Zandra designs have been worn by a diverse group of admirers including Diana, Princess of Wales, Jackie Onassis, Elizabeth Taylor, Kelly Osborne, Ashley Olsen, Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell and Freddie Mercury of the rock group ‘Queen’ – this list is endless!

it’s easy to see why people like her work, it’s easy for them to identify with, it’s quirky and colourful but it accessible at the same time. Zandra has been designer for Opera companies since 2001 while designing two collection of her own label each year. She is also Chancellor of the University of the Creative Arts and devotes much of her time to the Fashion and Textile Museum in London.

    I have always admired Zandra Rhodes. My first fashion book at the age of 8 was a bright pink leopard print hardcover on Z! She is truly an original.
