She is perpetually dissatisfied, swears incessantly, dreams of learning Chinese, refuses to talk about the Sex Pistols and never takes off her renowned platform shoes—the same ones Naomi Campbell wore when she tripped on the catwalk.
At 77, Dame Vivienne Westwood still pedals around London on her bike. The woman who started sewing at 11, became one of the iconic faces of Punk. Shocking London with provocative outfits, she has remained a persistent pain in the establishment’s backside, now with a noble title, as her designs grace the galleries of museums. But even from the heart of the docile bourgeoisie, she continues to surprise. She is a loud activist and a bold, subversive designer, but mostly, she refuses to let anyone stand in her way as she changes the world.
