VIVIENNE WESTWOOD manages to make each of her fashion shows a new chapter in her multiple planet-saving manifestos and today’s was no different.
“The Family Tree starts with the marriage of Gaia the Earth Mother and Science. They have two children so we have two branches. The child of the right hand branch is Quantity and it’s what happens when Progress marries Quantity. They produce unlimited Profit and unlimited Consumption and lead to disaster. This is our world.”
Despite her impassioned politics, however, Westwood has never lost her enthusiasm for fashion – her shows in Paris a smorgasbord of fabrics and colours, ideas and shapes that attest to her lifelong career. She simply doesn’t run out of ideas.

|MY FAVOURITE VIVIENNE WESTWOOD LOOK...|
Vivienne Westwood is one of my favourite designers and I love how she presents her work on the catwalk. It is always different but still recognisably VW.
This was my favourite look from her Ready to wear line for s/s '12.
One thing I love about Vivienne Westwood is that she has stayed true to her roots and is constantly producing edgy punk/rock like clothing, these outfits are not for the faint hearted but for people who want to push boudaries with fashion and really create a style that is a statement.
