RHODES MUSEUM DELAY

  • Comment

Fashion designer Zandra Rhodes has had to delay the opening of her Ricardo Legoretta-designed museum of fashion and textiles in Bermondsey, south London, because of lack of funds. Rhodes said the orange and pink building (AJ 13.8.98) depends on private investment from the US which has dropped off since 11 September.

She is seeking another £1 million for the museum, which will feature work by British designers, themed exhibitions, a library, shop and restaurant, plus space for students to work. The museum, by Mexican architect Legoretta and local practice Alan Camp Architects, should open in September.
