Vivienne Westwood Quotes

If you ask me what I think people should be getting next season. I’ll tell you what I’d like them to buy — nothing. I’d like people to stop buying and buying and buying… There’s this idea that somehow you’ve got to keep changing things, and as often as possible. Maybe if people just decided not to buy anything for a while, they’d get a chance to think about what they wanted; what they really liked.

Vivienne Westwood Quotes

The London Icon, Dame Vivienne Westwood hits 71 this Easter weekend. She remains at the forefront of UK fashion and is still as outspoken and glorious as ever.

From going knicker-less at Buckingham Palace to her legendary Kings Road legacy, Vivienne Westwood is a constant reminder of the possibilities that breaking the mold can bring. A schoolteacher until the ’80s Westwood became a spokesperson for subversion, rebellion and ultimately beautifully constructed, heavily female focused fashion.

Where male designers regularly cut curves, celebrate the angular and blur gender, Westwood creates strong silhouettes for even the slimmest of models and tailors busts that scream out to be worn by Christina Hendricks.

High fashion isn’t generally designed to be off-the-peg but consider Westwood’s Autumn/Winter 2011 Red Label collection at London Fashion Week show below. Ensemble after subtle ensemble of instant wearable tartan – gorgeous.

Vive la Vivienne!
