Vivienne Westwood DVD
Westwood created outfits that shocked. Her creations are exhibited in museums today. In the 1970s, this young British designer became known as the creator of punk fashion. She cultivated her image of a rebel in the international fashion scene too. Inspired by historical designs, she mixed wild styles, materials, and epochs, helped establish the renaissance of the corset, and made tweed and platform heels popular on the catwalk. The film accompanies the unconventional designer at work. Malcolm McLaren and fashion experts talk about her multifaceted progression from the self-taught Queen of Punk to a Pret-a-Porte trendsetter.
