Sister Snog loves : Rainbows in the Penthouse

f you have a dream, make it so humungous if you say it out loud people will think you’re a little crazy. Particularly if it’s as big, bold and bodacious as buying a warehouse in an up-&-coming part of London, turning it into a museum that focuses on your passion, getting a South American architect to design it and inviting a Princess to be guest of honour at the opening ceremony. That’s exactly what Dame Zandra Rhodes did. In May 2003 HRH Princess Michael of Kent opened the Fashion and Textile Museum (FTM) which had been designed (with heaps of input from Zandra of course) by the late Mexican architect Ricardo Legorreta. The first (and possibly only) hot pink, burnt orange, yellow and bright blue building in Bermondsey.
