Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist (15)

UK/2018/78mins/TBC Dir: Lorna Tucker

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. This documentary blends archive and insightful interviews with Vivienne's fascinating network of collaborators, guiding us on her journey from a childhood in post-war Derbyshire to the runways of Paris and Milan. This is an intimate and poignant homage to one of the true cultural icons, as she fights to maintain her brand's integrity, her principles and her legacy in a business driven by consumerism, profit and global expansion.

 

"Consistently entertaining, enthralled portrait of aberrant British fashion designer Vivienne Westwood. Sharp-lined but entirely flattering, rather like one of Westwood’s showiest catwalk gowns."
