Event description

Description



Venue; Castle Museum. Kirk room Friday 29th March, 2pm-3pm

Join us to explore the work and influences of Vivienne Westwood, one of Britain’s most eccentric, controversial and consistently original designers. By exploring key themes in her design – the use of bold graphics, the inter-relationship with music, a devotion to history – this talk will chart Westwood’s progress from iconoclastic outsider to an internationally revered figure. Drawing on iconic Westwood designs seen in the exhibition A Personal Collection of Vivienne Westwood Shoes, find out more about how the designer’s work, from the ‘Seditionaries’ boots worn by The Sex Pistols to the ‘Super Elevated Gillie’ that caused Naomi Campbell to tumble on a Paris catwalk, have established her reputation for leading where others can only follow.

Price. £5. Museum admission applies.
