Zandra for People Tree Pretty Woman Date Dress!
For summer 2016, it’s all about Pretty Woman, a la Julia Roberts, and a return to a politer, more demure age in fashion. A time when allure and a sense of feminine mystery ruled the roost and the heroines of I Capture the Castle spent all day thinking about the perfect dress to wear for tea and meeting an exciting beau. The British fashion designer who epitomises more than anyone how to construct such a beautiful dress is Dame Zandra Rhodes. The genius of Zandra is that she manages to clash pretty, punk and the sublimely feminine all in one adorable fashion masterpiece.
The summer sales are a good time to invest in forever, ladylike, ever so demure, swishy tea dresses, strewn with back to the seventies, pop art bows, lipsticks or butterflies. Does anything look more feminine and confidence building than a dress that flutters and flows and looks good from all angles and leaves something to the imagination?
Snap up the Zandra Rhodes iconic, asymmetric , fairtrade summer day dress in the softest certified organic cotton and your summer wardrobe dilemmas will be over. Let us share a bit of a best kept fashion secret. This is a chance to own and treasure a Zandra Rhodes original, fashion icon for a fraction of the cost of a couture version in her fabled Bermondsey atelier.
Even better, the lipstick dress is now a steal in the People Tree summer sale. You could wear it to a high summer wedding, hot date or just to put a smile on your face; after all, pink is the colour of happiness and girl can’t possibly stay blue in a pink lipstick dress.
Nothing excites us more than to see Zandra Rhodes, one our most enduringly talented, original and whimsically iconic, Made in Britain Fashion designers blazing a trail for ethical, slow fashion by continuing her inspirational collaboration with People Tree. We say where Zandra leads, the rest of the fashion pack will follow.
