It is true that each person who chooses to craft clothing brings a sensibility to the process, like any artist or craftsperson does to their chosen medium. It is rare, however that a designer of clothing produces so much work that arcs away from the normative in such a graceful way, without ever forgetting that inside the garments, there will be a real person, who must be able to move, and live.
Zandra Rhodes, who will be 76 this year still creates with the same delicious balance of art, edge, and comprehension of form, and function.
What makes her so interesting to me, as regards the Attire language and how it operates is that she has managed to create her own dialect of the tongue that lives as part of, but distinct within that greater structure. So take a nice long look at this remarkable person's work, and viewpoint. There is humor, grace, snap, and a gentle push to all her work.
