Dame Zandra Rhodes Crafts Colorful, Hand-Painted Patterns for Gainsborough
An octogenarian with a magenta bob, British fashion designer Dame Zandra Rhodes has conceived garments for Diana, Princess of Wales and Freddie Mercury. Now, the trained textile designer has expanded her purview from fashion to furnishings, her exuberant hand-painted patterns developed especially for English weaving house Gainsborough. The Britannia collection is composed of two fabrics: the cotton-silk O-Gee Whizz, an ogee pattern with daisy chains, and the wavy cotton Fabulous Frills, both woven on heritage looms at Gainsborough’s mill in Suffolk. In each, one might spy nods to William Morris, 1960’s paisley, or other Britishisms. Both come in four colorways, including fuchsia, of course.
