Even among trendsetters, Vivienne Westwood has had a colorful career. While other fashion designers mine Punk for inspiration, this pioneer actually lived it and helped define it!
Of particular interest is how she has evolved in over thirty-five years in fashion, and whether there are any discernible streaks that run through her entire career. Now is our chance to find out!
Hong Kong will be hosting a retrospective of Vivienne Westwood’s work that was originally shown in London’s illustrious Victoria and Albert Museum. The Hong Kong exhibit will be held in TaiKoo Place on Hong Kong Island from December 1st, 2008 to January 31st, 2009. This is an opportunity to catch an international-level look at a fashion icon. The show includes a vast collection of the designer’s work with over 140 designs and 70 objects.
