A Visual History of Vivienne Westwood

START

British designer Vivienne Westwood had no intent in becoming a world-renowned fashion icon. Her story began as a young woman breaking from the comfortable path prescribed for her. Born Vivienne Swire on April 8, 1941 in a village around Derbyshire, England, Westwood would grow out of her role as a local primary school teacher by following her passions. Her designs were pulled from the pages of history books, modernizing and altering where she believed fit. With a rebel heart, Westwood became one of the key figures who influenced the wave of against-the-rule-attitude fashions of the ’90s that continue to inspire looks today. Celebrating her 78th birthday today, CR looks back on some of the life moments that led Westwood to becoming the legendary designer she is today.
