Fashion icon Zandra Rhodes has paid a visit to the Rock to open her Aida exhibition at the Gibraltar Art Gallery.

The eccentric designer – who has created outfits for high-profile clients including Diana, Princess of Wales and Freddie Mercury – mingled with guests at the event, on what was her first visit to Gibraltar.

The Egyptian-inspired designs for Verdi’s opera Aida proved very popular, with a series of signed limited edition prints selling very quickly.

Rhodes’ collection was showcased during a fashion show at The King’s Bastion Leisure Centre, which also featured collections by fellow designers Jane Langdon and Jeremy Kaye.
