Zandra Rhodes – 50 years of fashion

Last night we went to the Beehive in Honiton for a talk and fashion parade on the clothes of Zandra Rhodes.  It was a humorous and enlightening talk by a lady called Claire Branfield who was an avid collector of Zandra Rhodes fashion.

The first half was the talk and Claire produced garment after garment from her suitcase like Mary Poppins producing things from her carpet bag.  She explained the history behind each piece and it’s approximate age, and picked out detail to explain to us such as bead work or pearls.

After the interval various garments were modelled by some of Claire’s friends and staff of the Beehive and Claire made the commentary on each piece.

It was a fascinating talk and show and well worth going.
