Vivienne Westwood is an English fashion designer which played an important role in the emergence of Punk Rock in the 1970s and has gone on to become one of the most original and influential designers of our time
Her designs combine a fearless unconformity with a sense of tradition
She is renowned for her gentle parody of Establishment styles, her use of very British fabrics such as Harris tweed and tartan, her re-use of historic garments such as the corset and crinoline
Yet, Vivienne Westwood approach has always been practical, driven by a curiosity about how things work, a process she describes as "learning through action"
Among other honors, Westwood also was awarded a place in the Victoria & Albert museum in London
Vivienne Westwood purses are full of colours and maintain a very punk style in every brand new collection
