WINSTON WIGGLES

Artist: Dame Zandra Rhodes

Winston Wiggle was painted in trademark pink by iconic fashion designer Dame Zandra Rhodes in the beautiful garden of her Fashion and Textile Museum in London.

Dame Zandra has been an iconic figurehead of the UK fashion industry for five decades. Her notoriety as a print designer combined with an affinity for fine fabrics and colour has resulted in signature aesthetic that is undeniably unique and continues to stand the test of time. Her iconic skill and status have resulted in a multitude of collaborations, most notably with Valentino for their 2017 spring/summer and resort collections.

With an archive spanning 50 years and a never-ending fascination with printed textile design, Dame Zandra continues to create an array of clothing and designs with her signature style. Zandra said: 'When our blank lion arrived, we took one look at him and thought we need to decorate him in true Zandra Rhodes style. So now he is now bright pink with swirls of black and gold!'

To celebrate fifty years of the Zandra Rhodes' label, the Fashion and Textile Museum has launched a retrospective, 'Zandra Rhodes: 50 Years of Fabulous.' The comprehensive exhibition explores five decades of the distinguished career of a British design legend.
