Paris Fashion Week, Andreas Kronthaler  for Vivienne Westwood but, first of all, to fully understand the creations signed Vivienne Westwood we should take a step back, going back to the origins..

Vivienne was born in Tintwistle and then she moved to London to study fashion and goldsmith’s,  she created a jewelry collection that she sold on the stalls in Portobello’s Road. Yet, everything started from her marriage with Derek Westwood, who opened her first shop with ‘Let it Rock’, the landmark for the underground culture of the 70s; Westwood early showed her personal vision of fashion: eccentric, extravagant and provocative. Her shop changed various names according the changes of styles of the designer. Always upstream and with a provocative voice, Vivienne Westwood has climbed over, in the years, the dividing line between fashion and social commitment turning that fashion, in some cases, into a social campaign against the politicians or men exploitation in the Earth.Andreas Kronthaler For Vivienne Westwood .
