Vivienne Westwood is known for her asymmetrical cuts and delightful draping techniques which masterfully transform the body into an eye-catching art form.
Vivienne Westwood is one of most fabulous and influential designers of all time. She was born on April 8, 1941 as Vivienne Isabel Swire. She taught primary school in North London. Vivienne's first husband was Derek Westwood. She had one son with Derek, named Ben who later became a photographer.
Vivienne met Malcolm McLaren who was a friend of her brother. Malcolm and Vivienne became friends and Malcolm faked being sick for awhile to get Vivienne to take care of him and to be near her. Malcolm McLaren was the manager for the Sex Pistols and Vivienne designed the clothing for the band. Vivienne Westwood also designed clothing for the New York Dolls and other bands. Vivienne was one of the first original designers when the punk movement started. Many of her garments are now collectible. The V&A museum in London had an exhibition of Vivienne Westwood styles from 2004-2005.
In 1970, Malcolm and Vivienne opened a shop on 430 King's Road in London called Let It Rock. They sold clothing targeted at the London Teddy Boy scene. Vivienne designed clothing for the store. The shop eventually went through a few incarnations. In 1972, the store became Too Fast to Live Too Young to Die and featured t-shirts with provocative slogans, leather clothing, and garments with zippers and chains. In 1974, the shop transformed again. It was called Sex and featured S&M clothing. Sex became synonymous with the punk scene. Then the shop became Seditionaries. Today, Vivienne Westwood's World's End iconic boutique carries her limited edition special clothing, shoes, and accessories.
Vivienne and Malcolm's son is Joseph Corre. Joseph Corre founded the women's lingerie company Agent Provocateur and now designs his own menswear line along with Simon "Branzley" Armitage named, A Child of the Jago.
Controversy surrounds the style of Vivienne Westwood. Supermodel Naomi Campbell famously took a tumble modeling nine inch platform shoes at a 1993 Vivienne Westwood Anglomania fashion show. The incident made these shoes famous. Always pushing the envelope, Vivienne Westwood excitingly experiments with the extremes of fashion.
In 1992, Vivienne Westwood married her current husband and creative partner, Andreas Kronthaler. In the same year, Vivienne caused another controversy when she received the OBE award. She twirled in her skirt and was knicker-less! She repeated the incident again in 2006 when she met the Prince of Wales.
Vivienne has always been a caring and political person. In 2005, she teamed up with British civil rights group Liberty to launch exclusive limited design t-shirts. One reads, "I AM NOT A TERRIORIST, please don't arrest me!" The other shirt reads, "Liberty - Throw Away the Key."
Vivienne Westwood collections include four women's lines: Gold Label, Red Carpet, Red Label, and Anglomania. She has a men's line appropriately titled MAN. She also has a World's End line that features her classic pieces from the Vivienne Westwood archive. Vivienne Westwood also designs a collection of bags, shoes, sunglasses, eight perfume lines, and has multitude of stores all over the world!
"You have a much better life if you wear impressive clothes." - Vivienne Westwood.

I love wearing Vivienne Westwood dresses. Her designs are unique, clever, and smart. This dress is a wraparound that fits my 5'4", 120 lb frame perfectly. It's like a wrap-around vest, with the top edges gathered to provide a secure fit . The gathering evokes a Grecian style and the wrap-around design makes the dress a pleasure to wear. Another feature of the design that I like, and which Ms. Westwood incorporates into many of her dresses, is the difference in hem length between the back and front. Again, that adds a unique design element to a very simple, elegant dress. The material drapes beautiful and feels nice and silky on the skin. Within a few hours of unwrapping it from the big Zappos box, I wore it to an Art event and it drew compliments.
