Vivienne Westwood – Vivienne Westwood & Ian Kelly
Vivienne Westwood is one of the icons of our age. Fashion designer, activist, co-creater of punk, global brand and grandmother; a true living legend. Her career has successfully spanned five decades and her work has influenced millions of people across the world.
For the first and only time, Vivienne Westwood has written a personal memoir, collaborating with award winning biographer, Ian Kelly, to describe the events, people and ideas that have shaped her glory, and with her unique voice, unexpected perspective and passionate honesty.
Ian Kelly is an award winning writer and actor. His previous works include internationally acclaimed biographies of Beau Brummell, Casanova, Samuel Fooke and Antonin Careme. He lives in London and Suffolk.
Extract From Book
“Vivienne’s name in the States, meanwhile, has waxed and waned in mainstream popularity, in a market that is percieved internationally as a little cautious, a little wary of shock. She has been known to bemuse the American press and to be openly critical of American foreign and domestic policy, which hardly endears her, though Vivenne credits American Vogue with helping her early profile enormously.”
