Dame Vivienne Westwood's name is synonymous with subversive British fashion, Westwood has become one of the most loved style icons in British fashion history. Starting her design career in 1971 at 430 Kings Road where she opened 'Let It Rock' – which later became 'Worlds End' - it has been a tale of true British style, eccentricity and rebellion. Iconic styles such as the high collar shirt and 'drunken' cut trouser sit alongside Westwood's continued experiments with fabric, cut and pattern. This period saw the birth of the punk rock movement of which McLaren, Westwood's partner, became the manager of the infamous punk band "The Sex Pistols", of which Vivienne Westwood drew most of her inspiration for the fashion designs. Over the years the Vivienne Westwood brand has become nothing short of a British phenomenon, winning the title of British Designer of the Year twice, and has amassed a wide base of loyal customers.
