I was part of another collaboration with http://www.revuu.it./ It is great fashion and lifestyle app that you can download and enjoy amazing editorials made by bloggers and curators. The theme of last editorial of mine was Alexander McQueen and this current one is about Vivienne Westwood. You know how she is avant garde not just in fashion but in common social sense, so I have named it "Feminist Manifesto", so you can go to revuu.it and check it out. It celebrates the power of woman, her strenghts and believes, all captioned in amazing fashion photos. So I will dedicate this post to the true "rebelesse femme" of couture, Vivienne Westwood!
If anyone is couture-ish, if anyone makes dramatic and know how to make couture drama vibes than that is Viv.
Her fashion work is reflection of her believes about society in general
so she was and still is a grandiose rebel. She was a pioneer of
subculture movement, called punk! And that fact defenitely had a great
impact on her couture art.
What I love about her way of
expression is that it is fearless, bold, she is not affraid of mixing
concepts of life, art, pop-culture. And from all those mixed pieces we
have ingenuine conglomerate of beautiful couture as a result. Mentioning
punk, she was first desiger who incorporated and brought it in
mainstream fashion pushing well known boundaries of haute couture.
loves to correspondet to tradition so one of her trade mark are tartan
patterns. She incorporates them in couture, making finest ensembles, all
of that featured by voluminous down parts of gowns. Only Vivienne can
make a glamorous wedding dress inspired by this scottish trade mark
still looking gorgeous and breathtaking. Her art is brave, decadent but
still elegant and on every fashion enthusiast´s "the best off" list. I
think that is still the great thing about Britain´s fashion. It´s
original, brave and full of experiment in visual way.
about wedding dress, her work, a one particular piece, was featured in
the famous fashion movie, "Sex And The City I". A stunning wedding dress
worn by Sarah-Jessica Parker, was a such memorable moment, an instant
all over globe recognizable move. More than that one designer couldn´t
wish! But Vivienne is not about that, about fame or glory. She is her
couture, she lives through her fashion expression and that´s the most
important thing avoiding tendency drama, filtrating it in pure art.
are your impressions and thoughts about Vivienne Westwood´s work? Do
you like her edgyness, do you find it interested and glamorous?
Thank you for your attention!
