The british fashion icon, Vivienne Westood, decided to unveil the story of her life with a biographical book, for the first time ever, written by the designer herself with the contribution of renowed biographer, Ian Kelly. A controversal figure in the fashion and political world, Vivienne gathered together 464 pages of wild and glamorous life, with friends like Naomi Campbell, Pamela Anderson and Prince Charles contributing anecdotes during the two years needed for the writing of the book.
The story begins with the opening of Westood’s first vintage clothing store with Malcolm McLaren, manager of Sex Pistols, on the King Road in 1970. Since then, with her unusual way of being, she created an empire, the british culture and history remaining her main inspiration font.
The book, from whose cover the queen of fashion, photographed by Jurgen Teller, is watching us, is available to pre-order at www.viviennewestood.com, for $ 31.45.
