Known and recognized for her sharp and bold creations, Vivienne Westwood is now the image of a non-conformist fashion icon. Born in England in 1941, she is the eldest of a family of three children and grew up in the village of Tintwistle. Having studied at the Harrow School of Art, she chose to become a teacher.
Loving the night-life, she married a nightclub manager, before divorcing and becoming the partner of Malcolm McLaren, the manager of the band New York Dolls and the Sex Pistols.
Immersed in this nonconformist universe, Vivienne Westwood created bold collections and opened her first store in 1971.
She quickly became known for her punk rock style creations and provocative eccentricity.In the 80s, John Fairchild classed her among the six most influential designers of the time in the "Women's Wear Daily". A fierce animal rights protector she announced in 2000 that she would no longer be using real fur in her collections.
Since their start in the 1970's, the brand Vivienne Westwood has asserted its punk rock style, which became well known in a boutique that was called "Let it rock". London Men and women who are in the know love the charm of this undergound brand with a rebel spirit.
The daring Vivienne Westwood
Clothes, bags, shoes... the brand brings together fashion icons with their new designs that are provocative and unapologetic. On the catwalk or in a shop, Vivienne Westwood is different from the rest. For example : Vivienne Westwood designed the wedding dress worn by Sarah Jessica Parker in the film Sex and the City in 2008.
Fashion allows us to express ourselves and be eccentric, something Vivienne Westwood is great at doing! And speaking of eccentricity, we also love the crazy bags from Barbara Rihl and the unusual shoes from United Nude.
