This special guy came in as a stray and has won over the hearts of countless staff members and volunteers.  He is truly a precious and loving soul.  He will do well in a variety of homes, but due to his size, a home with children over 12 years and older is recommended.

(en Español.....and English)

Todas las personas que aprecian La Moda, La Alta Costura, y magnificas prendas de vestir -que inclusive podrian ser consideradas como obras de arte; no se deben perder la exhibicion de Zandra Rhodes que actualmente se expone en el Museo Internacional Mingei.
La basta coleccion incluye textiles, hermosos atuendos hechos a mano e inclusive los bosquejos, que con vibrantes colores,  muestran el talento y la inspiracion de Zandra. Inspiracion que viene de la naturaleza y sus colores y de los muchos lugares exoticos que ella ha visitado.

Una de las partes favoritas de la exhibicion es la llamada “73/44” vestidos de Zandra. Realmente me impresiono las variaciones en la tecnica; en unas prendas ha utilizado plieges, en otras ataduras en satin, fruncidos a mano, rebordados y ornamentados a mano y hermosos acabados tambien a mano que hacen que cada uno de estos vestidos sean unicos en su genero. Los vestidos tienen el mismo corte, mas al aplicar las tecnicas mencionadas, estos se convierten en piezas unicas de arte. Otra parte de la exhibicion que resalta, es la coleccion de vestidos del año 1977, que esta inspirada en un sofisticado estilo “Rock and Roll”, donde ella utilizo el jersey de seda, los seguros de metal, cadenas y las costuras expuestas. Todas estas prendas fueron ispiradas en la tendencia ‘Punk’ de esta epoca, por lo que le atribuyeron a Zandra el sobrenombre de “La Princesa del Punk”.

Durante el desfile de modas, los disenos de Zandra circularon graciosamente en el escenario. Con disenos un poco caprichosos y en colores brillantes, el show comenzo mostrando piezas clasicas, eternamente jovenes que fueron gradualmente progresando hasta mostrar su coleccion mas moderna.

Los atuendos incluyeron blusones fluidos, vestidos con dobladillos de panuelo, valenzuelas rebordadas en pedreria, vestidos de cinturas caidas con espaldas descubiertas. Los fabulosos vestidos de noche estaban rebordados en lentejuelas y pedreria, y otros modernamente confeccionados con plumas, tul y brillantes bordados.

En el gran final Zandra presento un sofisticado y elegante vestido de novia de estilo sirena con fruncido, la falda en tiras con plumas y un exquisito bordado en pedreria. La atencion a los detalles y las hermosas telas hacen que los disenos de Zandra sean eternos.


English version:

For anyone with an appreciation of couture sewing, high-fashion, or wearable art, the exhibit at the Mingei International Museum featuring Zandra Rhodes is not to be missed.  Included in the collection are textiles and beautifully hand crafted garments.  Displays of sketches in vibrant colors showed Zandra's design inspirations from nature, color, and her many travels to exotic places. 

One of my favorite displays at the exhibit was Zandra's "73/44" dresses.  I loved how the variations in technique incorporating pleating, satin binding, hand smocking, hand beading, and beautiful hand rolled edges made each of these dresses look like a completely different dress.  Each dress utilized the same style but were each a unique piece of art.  Other noteworthy pieces were dresses from her 1977 collection a sophisticated rock and roll look, using silk jersey, safety pins, chains, and exposed seams inspired by the "punk" scene of the time thus giving her the nick name "Princess of Punk."

During the runway show Zandra's designs flowed gracefully across the stage.  Filled whit whimsy and bright color combinations she began the show with classic vintage pieces then transitioned into her modern collection.  Garments included flowy tunic tops, dresses with handkerchief hems, glitzy bell bottoms, dropped waist dresses with cowl backs, fabulous beaded and sequined gowns and some avant guarde dresses made of feathers, tulle, and sparkle. Her finale showcased a sophisticated and elegant mermaid style wedding gown featuring ruching, a tiered skirt with feathers and beautiful bead work.  Zandra's attention to detail and stunning textiles make her fashions timeless.
