I selected the designer Vivienne Westwood [initially sounded familiar -- later I came to the conclusion that I only knew her name because my roommate is obsessed with Sex in the City]; honestly I couldn’t have somewhat randomly chose a better designer for myself. Today, Westwood is known as The Mother of Punk for highlighting a subculture of history from the mid-seventies. Her mix of spontaneous energy and passion to explore and experiment has made this somewhat business-savy fashion designer an icon in the fashion industry.
Westwood is an icon who deseved all of her awards including two time winner for Fashion Designer of the Year, the Queen’s award, and the UK Fashion Export Award for Design. The designer’s works has been exhibited in The Museum of London, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Victoria and Albert Museum; just to name a few. Her hard work and dedication has led to great success around the world; especially in Hong Kong , Milan, New York, and Liverpool where she has opened stores. Today, the 71 year old designer is still doing what she loves, designing.
