About Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood is an iconic British designer, who started her own line of self-titled couture clothing in the 1980s. The style icon designs clothing, footwear and accessories for men, women and children.
As a brand, Vivienne Westwood very much encapsulates the larger than life real life counterpart; taking inspiration from the punk revolution with its safety pins, latex and general misbehaviour which still filters down to today's 'anti-fashion' collections. Vivienne Westwood clothing is delightfully taboo whilst remaining relevant and interesting. In 1993 supermodel Naomi Campbell infamously stumbled whilst modelling a pair of Vivienne Westwood shoes, possibly owing to their dizzying height and daring design.
It is arguably easier to name famous faces who haven't worn or modelled Vivienne Westwood, but particularly relevant figures include Princess Eugenie, Gwen Stefani and Sarah Jessica Parker. The brand has graced the front cover of every fashion magazine known to man, including Cosmopolitan, Grazia, Look, and the fashion bible, Vogue.
Vivienne Westwood carries five labels: Gold Label, Red Label, MAN, Anglomania, and the World's End collection. Each is slightly different and every style enthusiast has their favourite.
This is the 'demi-couture' line, which is hand-finished in the UK.
Made in Italy, the Red Label is made with the academic yet reckless young woman in mind.
Unsurprisingly, MAN is Vivienne Westwood's male collection.
Anglomania celebrates all things British, made in Italy.
World's End Collection.
The World's End Collection is a look back at Vivienne's personal favourite pieces from her archive, as well as her favourites from the latest collections, and the occasional one-off piece.
