Notes Known as the 'Dinosaur coat'.

For the Scottish National Higher examinations in Art and Design (June 2009) this coat was part of question 12; students were asked to analyse the important design features with reference to 'fabric, function and style'.

This coat is shown worn by a model towards the end of the film INSIGHT: Zandra Rhodes, directed by Peter Greenaway for the Central Office of Information in 1981.
Location Zandra Rhodes Archives, London, UK
