Punk Princesses : Win a Zandra Rhodes Star Dress!
Calling all Punk Fashion Princesses! Win this iconic Zandra Rhodes for People Tree Heirloom star dress, and meet the celebrated designer at her eclectic atelier in London.
The star print dress is based on her revolutionary Royal College of Arts sixties prints. Zandra’s bold, psychedelic prints were considered too wild for the prim fashion establishment when her colourful, pop art inspired designs burst onto the music and fashion scene of swinging, sixties London. Then punk exploded into the national consciousness, and Zandra became the crown princess of fashion counter culture, while Queen’s Freddie Mercury stalked the stage like a princely matador in her theatrical, intricately constructed masterpieces.
Now the pink-haired fashion visionary is a fashion icon, a Dame of the British Empire and the eternal style rebel.
The first dress for you to win is the stellar star tunic mini dress by Zandra as fashion takes a trip back to the optimism and brave new world culture of the sixties. Today, Zandra is shaking up the fashion world by showing that fashion fashion can be cool, Fairtrade, organic and an catalyst for a new fashion revolution. Never one to rest on her stylish laurels.. she is now the Punk Princess of Sustainability!
