Dame Vivienne Westwood, renowned for her flame-orange hair and outlandish British designs, first began her career in fashion in 1971. She sold her rebellious designs in husband Malcom McClaren’s London store. He was also manager of the Sex Pistols, which contributed to the punk-inspired image that Westwood’s collection retains to this day.
Her early striking designs featured Scottish tartan prints, safety pins, bondage and spiked collars for jewellery, which are now seen to define the punk movement of that era. Her more recent collections still continue to use rudimentary methods of tailoring and cloth cutting principles which give her clothes a distinctly disheveled look.
The flagship store on Conduit Street is one of three shops owned by Westwood in London, her clothes also appear in the capital’s department stores Harrods, Selfridges and Harvey Nichols.
Opening Times: Monday-Saturday 10:00-18:00 and Sunday 12:00-17:00.
