Vivienne Westwood Biography

Vivienne Isabel Westwood (* April 8, 1941, as Vivienne Isabel Swire in Tintwistle, Derbyshire; † December 29, 2022, in London) is considered not only an unconventional designer in the mid-seventies, but also the inventor of punk fashion. Forty years later, Westwood's fashion is characterized by eccentric combinations of colorful patterns, rare fabrics and borrowings from historical clothing. With the much quoted statement "Buy less, choose well, make it last," the politically active British woman also emphatically promotes more sustainability in the fashion world.
