Zandra Rhodes plans Legoretta fashion museum

news

Fashion designer Zandra Rhodes is masterminding Britain's first fashion and textile museum by converting a brick warehouse to match the colour of her bright-pink hair.

The four-storey 1960s building in London's Bermondsey will have a pink- rendered facade and luxury top-floor flats. It was approved by planners last week and Rhodes has designed patterns for the metal doors and shutters.

The museum and facades are designed by Mexican Ricardo Legorreta. London's Alan Camp Architects is working on the six flats accessed by glass atrium on the raised top floor. The largest flat will be home to the fashion designer.

The museum will also include her workshops: design studios, print and cutting rooms. A ground-floor cafe will lead out of the 2800m2 space on to the pavement, which will be covered in bright mosaics. Building work is due to start in three months and final costs are still being worked out.
