IN THE PINK: Among the guests at Bernard Willhelm’s show at the Paris showroom ON|OFF on Thursday night was British designer Zandra Rhodes, who staged a retrospective catwalk show at the same venue the night before. The 22 outfits she showed were drawn from collections spanning from 1969 to the present day, and will next go on display March 20 at the designer’s Fashion and Textile Museum in London. Rhodes, known for her colorful textile designs, said that 500 of her creations were being catalogued and photographed for a Web site open to students and scholars, which is expected to launch later this year. The designer noted with satisfaction that prints are back in force for spring-summer. “I feel very influential, which is wonderful,” she said.
