Description

Since igniting the punk movement with ex-partner and Sex Pistols’ manager Malcolm McLaren, Dame Vivienne Westwood has been redefining British fashion for over 40 years, and is responsible for creating many of the most distinctive looks of our time. The film blends archive, beautifully crafted reconstruction, and insightful interviews with Vivienne’s fascinating network of collaborators, guiding us on her journey from a childhood in postwar Derbyshire to the runways of Paris and Milan. This is an intimate and poignant homage to one of the true cultural icons of our time, as she fights to maintain her brand’s integrity, her principles and her legacy in a business driven by consumerism, profit and global expansion.

    'I hate England' - words from the lady herself as she encouraged the Scots to leave Britain but Britain to stay in the EU. She despises her own country while reaping its rewards, hates capitalism yet makes millions from business. A truly hateful, hyporcrite of a woman.

    A great film that shows what it is like to be inside the world of Vivienne Westwood, fashion designer and activist. At times laugh out loud funny at others cringeworthy it shows how one woman’s dream has blossomed and grown to be a monster out of her control. It is an insight into how Vivienne has grown and is now more into her activism and is happy to allow her husband control over the fashion part of the business
