Zandra Rhodes: Self-belief, workaholics, and sentimental hoarding

explicit

Would you describe yourself as a workaholic? Fashion designer Zandra Rhodes has an insatiable sense of drive that’s fuelled her iconic career since the 1960s.   In this chat with Fearne, Zandra is honest about how she threw herself into work as a way to cope with things like the death of the love of her life, and her own cancer diagnosis.   Zandra is very clear that we need our own sense of creativity, colour, and vibrancy in life. She explains why it’s so vital to have self-belief, and how to make sure you’re not compromising your own values and style for other people.   There’s also the story of when Zandra was carted away in a police car for growing marijuana...   Zandra’s book, Iconic: My Life in 50 Objects, is out now.
