Vivienne Westwood explores her life in culture
From her role as a pioneer of punk, to driving a tank through the constituency of then Prime Minister, David Cameron, it’s safe to say that Vivienne Westwood has rarely shied away from showing her cards.
In 2014, the iconic fashion designer and activist spoke at our Women of the World festival, joining the then Liberty director Shami Chakrabati on stage for an eclectic discussion (below) befitting of her anarchic roots.
Now, three years on, Westwood is returning to Southbank Centre with Get a LIfe, drawing on her own diaries, which she began as a series of online posts in 2010. This keynote talk delves into Westwood’s love of great literature, and explores her life involvement in culture, and commitment to arts, politics and the environment.
