Book Overview

The only reason I'm in fashion is to destroy the word 'conformity, ' Vivienne Westwood (b. 1941) declared early in her career. With her provocative synthesis of historic British fashion, classic painting aesthetics, and punk culture, the British designer has continuously revolutionized the fashion industry since her first catwalk collection, Pirate, debuted in 1981. Opening with a concise history of the house and brief biographical profiles of Westwood and her longtime collaborator Andreas Kronthaler, this spectacular volume--the seventh in the celebrated Catwalk series--documents all of Westwood's catwalk collections from 1981 to today. Short texts illuminating each collection's highlights and influences are accompanied by carefully curated catwalk photographs showcasing hundreds of clothing ensembles, accessories, beauty looks, and set designs, along with the top fashion models who walked the runway, including Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell. With an extensive reference section, this lavishly illustrated volume provides unrivalled insight into one of the most thought-provoking and influential fashion designers in the world.

   I LOVE ❤️❤️❤️ Plaid
My beautiful and fashionably printed hardcover Vivienne Westwood book is every bit as amazing as I thought it would be! The pricing was fair. The delivery was quick. Protected by bubble wrap and shrink wrapped in plastic and clean and inspiring every page. Satisfied highly.

Obviously this book does not have all the items of her collections, but packs a punch. It was very pleasant to watch. This largeass book is love.
