Zandra Rhodes was one of the British designers who put London at the forefront of the international fashion scene in the 1970's. This gorgeous dove grey hand-painted dress dates back to her 1977 couture collection. Her designs are considered creative statements, dramatic but graceful, bold but feminine. Zandra is renowned for her use of color, and this piece really lets her brilliance shine through. The garment is fashioned from fully-lined beaded and hand-painted dove grey semi-sheer silk of the highest quality. I love the plunging sheer illusion appliqued-net which framed the bodice beautifully. The puff-sleeves and waist both has elastic stretch for a perfect fit. The full swing-skirt with pointed hemline finishes this dress off which such a stunning silhouette. We added many pictures to you could see how much detail to put into this garment. Rhodes' exotic originality makes her work among the most copied in the fashion world today.
