Description - Vivienne Westwood by Claire Wilcox

Over 300 illustrations convey the dynamism and impact of her ideas from the early punk years to her more recent collections, presenting imaginative and stunning creations that have been a major influence on fashion, music and art since the 1970s. Outfits worn by the Sex Pistols contrast with more recent creations for Tracey Emin and Cameron Diaz, demonstrating why Westwood is the most talked-about designer in Britain. Her enormous cult following in Japan, Europe, Australia and the USA gives the book instant international appeal, while Claire Wilcox's authoritative text sheds light on the sources of inspiration and working practices of this fascinating and dedicated designer.
