Zandra Rhodes Exhibition

Before visiting this exhibit, I’ll admit, I didn’t know who Zandra Rhodes was. I was looking for new fashion exhibits in London because I love to see the way different designers did/do their craft. It was so interesting to see her designs and to realise that her work has probably inspired many of the lifestyle wear that’s around today (being from the Caribbean and working at a lifestyle retailer, it’s been interesting to compare her work with the lifestyle brands we sell in-store!). Below are a few photos of pieces that I found really interesting.

This sunflower dress caught my eye first, because it’s my favorite flower, and second because so the cool materials and patchwork details that were used
I love how campy this dress is and the way it reflected light. I also don’t see many pieces with foil fabric, and I noticed that she used a lot of that
I loved the detail, materials and costume-like appearance of these pieces. As you can see she used the metallic/foil fabric again!

Alexander McQueen

i love a good McQueen exhibit

I recently stopped by the Alexander McQueen London flagship store to see the latest exhibition and there were so many glorious and one of a kind pieces that made me feel  so inspired and excited!

I took photos of some of my favorite pieces that were on display and inserted them below for you to have a look, of course. I am in LOVE with the pops of pink and the stunning flower inspired shapes (I’m a big flower person if you didn’t know). My absolute favorites are the hot pink sleeved suit jacket and blue died floral inspired dress, and I found the jute (i think?) dress with the leather harness so unique.

What are your favorites?   XO- Ally
