Dame Zandra Rhodes held a lecture and book signing on Oct. 14, at Warwick’s Bookstore in La Jolla. Dennis Nothdruft is the head of exhibition at the Fashion and Textile Museum in London, and he was on-hand to ask Rhodes questions about her 50-year career in fashion. They were greeted with a packed audience. Rhodes spoke about her career in the early days when punk came along and she designed garments with holes and chains. In the beginning of her career, she said she would start off with spectacular fashion shows creating performance art — some of the runways had ballet dancers, Egyptian dancers walking sideways, and models tossing rose petals. At that time, they always did a celebration poster for each season.

Rhodes discussed some of the people she worked with during her five-decade career, which began with her big break meeting Diana Vreeland when she came to the U.S. Additional personalities she talked about meeting were Diana Ross, Princess Diana, and Freddie Mercury from Queen. The audience had an opportunity to ask questions and one was, “Do you wear anyone else’s clothes?” Rhodes said not if she is trying to sell her dresses. Another audience member asked, “How do you always look so delicious?” Rhodes said that she uses herself as a pallet and begins with her makeup and then adds the jewelry until the look is visually pleasing to her. After the lecture and Q&A, the audience formed a huge line for the book signing.

Both Rhodes and Nothdruft are editors of this new publication, “50 Fabulous Years in Fashion.” The book has a foreword by British journalist and fashion critic Suzy Menkes. The fashion icon and interior designer Iris Apfel wrote the preface to the book. You may remember that Apfel was the subject of an exhibit at The Costume Institute in The Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2006. Contributions in the book looked like a who’s who in fashion and included industry icon Mary Lou Luther, American fashion designer Anna Sui, film producer Joan Agajanian Quinn, and Indian designer Rajeev Sethi. London-based journalist, author, and opera specialist Helena Matheopoulos, textile historian and author Mary Schoeser, and creative director of Valentino, Pierpaolo Piccioli, also made additional contributions.

Rhodes is currently making guest appearances and book signings throughout California, New York, and London. In conjunction with the book, Rhodes has an exhibition at the Fashion and Textile Museum in London called “Zandra Rhodes: 50 Years of Fabulous.” The exhibition highlights five decades of this British design legend and will run through Jan. 26, 2020.

Warwick’s is the oldest continuous family-owned business and operated independent bookstore in the U.S. It’s now in its fourth generation. Some of the biggest authors and celebrities, such as Ozzy Osbourne to Hilary Clinton and Dame Zandra Rhodes, have come here for people to meet and greet.

I had my first outbreak of Herpes virus nearly 4 years ago. Of all the horridness, the pain and itching were unbearable. I literally freaked out as my general physician said that it had no cure. The outbreaks were not that frequent initially, but every time I fall sick, it would resurface. I had so many sores this year that I was desperate to try anything to get rid of them. Three months ago a friend suggested that I try Dr sikama remedy that's helping people get cured from HSV, COUGHING, HIV&AIDS, GENITAL HERPES, SNEEZING, HEPATITIS B, CANCER e.t.c. I quickly ordered the product and started using the remedies. I'm so relieved to say that I've not had even one outbreak for a whole month now. Moreover, I'm feeling great from within. I truly endorse this herbs product Dr sikama render to me. So if you are suffering from any deadly disease you can also contact this great man on his email: [email protected] call/WhatsApp: 2348130725051

Its a miracle that I am alive today. I encounter HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS (HSV1/2) for good four (4) years, six (6) months and twelve (12) day with my calculations, before I meet the great Dr. Balogun. I am Brayan Melody from Fresno California, united state of America and I was affected with herpes virus,.Herpes is a viral infection cause by the Herpes simplex virus, marked by painful, watery blister in the skin or mucous membrane or on the genitals. This was what I suffered for good four years. I have visited CVS Pharmacy in Fresno for treatment but no improvement. I meet Dr.Balogun online while I was searching for herpes cure I read a testimony about his work. I give a try that now becomes a testimony in my life. I contacted Dr.Balogun on WhatsApp   2349064881054 or you can contact on E-mail: [email protected]

I am here to testify about what DR. IYOHA did for me. I have been suffering from (GENITAL HERPES VIRUS) disease for the past 1 years and had constant pain and inching, especially in my private part. During the first year, I had faith in God that i would be cured someday .This disease started circulating all over my body and I have been taking treatment from my doctor, few weeks ago I came across a testimony of williams on the internet testifying about a Man called DR. IYOHA on how he cured him from 7 years HSV 2. And he also gave the email address of this man, advise anybody to contact him for help on any kind of diseases that he would be of help, so I emailed him telling him about my (HSV 2) he told me not to worry that I was going to be cured!! Well, I never doubted him I have faith he can cure me too,, DR. IYOHA prepared and sent me Healing Oil, Soap, roots and herbs which I took. In the first one week, I started experiencing changes all over me, after 3weeks of using his Roots/ Herbs, Oil and Soap, I was totally cured. no more inching , pain on me anymore as DR. IYOHA assured me. After some time I went to my doctor to do another test behold the result came out negative. So friends my advise is if you have such disease or know anyone who suffers from it or any other disease like HPV, HBV, HIV, ALS, HBP, CANCER etc. you can contact DR. IYOHA for help via email} [email protected] OR call : 1 407 337 9869. Thanks once again DR. IYOHA for making me a happy woman again ..

I contacted what I believe must have been herpes in 2017, though I never tested positive for it. I started having outbreaks often with pains few months later i went for a test and i was heart broken. I was advice to keep using hospital medicine to control the outbreaks and pains but I found out herbs might help get rid of herpes while doing research, i came across testimonies of Dr Bulukona healing people with herbal medicine, i contacted him and he prepared the cure for me, immediately i started my treatment the outbreaks totally went away, i kept on with the medicine till i completed the dosage, i went back for another test and am completely cured. My doctor was amazed and called it a divine miracle. This is to someone out there going through the pains of herpes, do not give up. The doctor might say there is no cure but natural herbs are capable of killing the virus, contact Dr Bulukona today,Email: [email protected] ,Website: bulukonasolutionstemple.webs.com , phone: 2348162539183
