Her designs are considered clear, creative statements, dramatic but graceful, bold but feminine.
Zandra Rhodes was considered as one of the new wave of British designers who put London at the forefront of the international fashion scene in the 1970s. She designed costumes for Princess Diana and Freddie Mercury of Queen, and continues to design for royalty and celebrities. In May 7 2009, Zandra Rhodes teamed up with Marks & Spencer and launched a capsule collection, using her creative and iconic designs as inspiration, featuring a range of women’s wear, accessories, holiday pieces and lingerie. It turned out to be a huge success.

Turning silk into yellow and white gold or silver with a combination of precious and semi-precious stones, such as Sapphire, Swarovski Crystal, and Pink Tourmaline, etc. Zandra has created five different styles of beautiful and stylish necklaces, earrings, rings, bracelets, and brooches. The Zandra Rhodes jewellery includes five separate collections, which are Oriental Whisper collection, Punk Chic Collection, Lovely Lilies collection, Signature collection and Manhattan Lady Collection.
