Over the course five decades, the girl born Vivienne Isabel Swire has gone from punk-provocateur to Britain’s best-loved fashion designer. Raised in the D.I.Y. climate of post-war Derbyshire, it was 1970s London where she opened the Kings Road boutique that launched her name and, along with co-conspirator Malcolm McLaren, gave birth to Britain’s most defining youth movement: punk. In the years that followed – from Pirates to Mini Crini, Harris Tweed to the present day – she plundered history, pioneering the idea that fashion could be about more than just clothes – it could be about protest too. Join us, as we meet the incendiary grande dame behind the name, and discover more about a bone fide i-D icon: Vivienne Westwood.
