Vivienne Westwood is a famous british fashion designer. With her partner, Malcom Maclaren, she was responsible for making punk popular. She started making clothes in the 1960s and her style was very simple at first. In the 70s , although her designs were considered really quite shocking by many, they were thought to be futuristic and fascinating by others. When punk rock started, Vivienne’s clothes were a fundamental part of the movement they were subversive and provocative, but they weren’t cheap, so soon people copied the aggressive look. She then created the romantic, historical,, fashions on the early 1980s and again her ideas became successful.
