A few weeks ago Iwent to the Mingei Museum in San Diego where they had on display designs from the textile designer Zandra Rhodes. She was popular in the 60’s -80’s for her colorful fabrics and designs. The “Manhattan” as she calls it, is a shocking pink dress of silk georgette that portrays the Empire State & Crysler Buildings in silver, orange, black, pink, white and gold sequins and bugle beads. This beautiful garment is just one of many that was on display.
I cant tell you how thrilling it was to see this collection in person and up close, all the details and work that goes into each piece you just dont see in pictures. I left very inspired. If you ever have a chance to see a designers collection in person, I highly recommend it. Its a great experience to have.
