Vivenne Westwood began designing clothes in 1971, upon opening her first shop on London’s iconic Kings Road. The brand has long-been known for its punk attitude and trailblazing aesthetic, causing controversy and excitement year after year. Today, her eponymous label is one of the last independent global fashion houses in the world. Vivenne Westwood embodies Vivienne’s steadfast commitment to protecting life on Mother Earth, with a focus on three areas of impact: quality vs. quantity, the earth, and arts and culture. With a range of influences feeding into the label, including British and French history, and the Punk movement, Vivienne Westwood produces clothing, footwear and accessories ranges in line with the brand’s strong core values.
