Dame Vivienne Isabel Westwood DBE RDI is a British fashion designer and businesswoman, largely responsible for bringing modern punk and new wave fashions into the mainstream. Westwood came to public notice when she made clothes for Malcolm McLaren's boutique in the King's Road, which became known as "SEX"
Vivienne believes that fashion is a combination and exchange of ideas between France and England; “On the English side we have tailoring and an easy charm, on the French side that solidity of design and proportion that comes from never being satisfied because something can always be done to make it better, more refined.”
Known across the world for her inspiring, innovative, and unforgettable designs, Vivienne Westwood is a true Quintessentially British Brand. ... In London, the Vivienne Westwood identity began to form for the first time, in the decade when Vivienne and McLaren ran a store originally called “Let it Rock” on King's Road.
