Southwold Pier





June 2014


The iconic fashion designer, Zandra Rhodes put in a personal appearance at Southwold Pier to promote the arrival of her seaside-inspired handbags, jewellery and accessories. With her bright pink hair, theatrical make-up and art jewellery, Zandra has firmly stamped her identy on the International World of fashion. Her nickname, the Princess of Punk, comes as no suprise as her glamorous and extrovert designs have been chosen by the likes of Princess Diana, Elizabeth Taylor, Kylie Mingoue and Freddy Mercury of the rock group 'Queen', to name but a few.

Throughout the sunny Summers afternoon Zandra delighted in meeting with her fans, signing copies of her books and taking photographs with her new collection, before enjoying the freedom and fun of The Pier. She particularly enjoyed playing in the Under the Pier Show, and even indulged in taking an ice-cream sundae selfie in our Boardwalk Restaurant!

Zandra's collections are sold in the top stores and boutiques around the World so we are truely privileged to have been able to welcome a true fashion icon and such a fantastic lady to Southwold Pier.
