Pop art created a fresh new outlook using everyday objects and design conflating high and low culture into a bright bold aesthetic. Fueled by the prestigious art schools in London specifically the Royal College of Art, the Pop artists of the late 1950s and early 1960s found their voice. A young, eager, and talented textile student, Zandra Rhodes, took inspiration from the Pop movement encircling her at the Royal College of Art and the energy and personalities that put London on the fashion map.
This Zhandra Rhodes book features stunning photography of never seen before textiles, drawings, and archival images combined with fashion photography by Clive Arrowsmith, Guy Bourdin, Henry Clarke, David Bailey, Helmut Newton, and Richard Traeger.
