Zandra Reigns Pink Perfection at Mingei


January 21st, 2011 a very colorful and fashionable crowd attended a dinner and fashion show at the Mingei International Museum. The star of the evening was the colorful international designer Zandra Rhodes amidst a dazzling retrospective exhibition of her designs throughout the decades.

Entrance was via the pink carpet. A bow to the pink haired Zandra herself!

Among those there to support the Zandra's London Textile Museum were Honorary Committee Members Chetna Bhatt, Dixie Unruh, Rhonda Brown, Susie Spanos, Jeanne Jones, and of course Zandra Rhodes.

More there enjoying the exhibit and later fashion show with dinner were Martha and George Gafford, Martha had one of her Zandra dresses on display, Tamara Strauss, she did the beautiful jewelry for the fashion show, Diana Cavagnaro, she had some of her 'doll' hats in the show, Rob Sidner, he's the Director of the Mingei International Museum, Valerie and Harry Cooper, and Sylvia and Richard Ostronik.

Both Valerie Cooper and her mother Sylvia Ostronik were wearing Zandra.

More there included Sheri and Stuart Jamieson, Denise and Bertrand Hug, Iris and Matthew Strauss, Joan and Irwin Jacobs, Annasue and John Wilson of the Timken Museum of Art, Sandy Redman and Jeff Mueller, and newlyweds Natasha Reiss and Erik Johnson.

Natasha wore a Zandra designed wedding gown last October. She wore it again this evening as the finale of the fashion show!
