This spring the first feature-length documentary is to be released on one of fashion’s most loved and iconic activists: Vivienne Westwood.
‘Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist’ will be released in March at Sundance, the largest independent film festival in the United States.
The film directed by Lorna Tucker (who also did work for Nike and Alexander McQueen) consists of interviews with Westwood’s friends, family and collaborators as well as old archival shots. The movie will give an impression of the designers rise and creative world as well as her relationship with Malcolm McLaren in the 70’s.
Vivienne Westwood made her up come in the 70’s, leading the punk scene and dressing celebrities like the Sex Pistols. Since then the house has grown into an internationally known and loved brand. Besides her unconventional creations Vivienne Westwood is widely known for her activism and support for several causes as well as her collaborations with the EFI, Peta and War Child.
