Linda Watson: Vogue on Vivienne Westwood


Vogue on Designers is a new series of fashion books from British Vogue which tell the fascinating stories of iconic designers accompanied by world-class photographs and illustrations from the Vogue archive. 

Dame Vivienne Westwood is the undisputed queen of British fashion - 'the Coco Chanel of our day' according to Alexander McQueen - whose innovatory genius is acknowledged worldwide. Her revolutionary designs encompass the co-creation of punk, the reinvention of the crinoline, the restyling of Harris Tweed, the re-introduction of platforms and the re-drawing of the hourglass figure, as well as Sarah Jessica Parker's sumptuous Sex and the City wedding dress. Vogue on Vivienne Westwood provides a unique insight into the incredible career of this fearless non-conformist with a relentless passion for tradition.
