    • Synopsis
    • Filmmaker Lorna Tucker has exclusive, unprecedented access, following Vivienne throughout 2014 as she juggles the seemingly contradictory roles of world-renowned fashion designer, and impassioned, outspoken (often eccentric) environmental activist.

      Punk. Icon. Activist. The undisputed Queen of Fashion Dame Vivienne Westwood is known for her subversive and original take on British fashion. Told in her own words, Westwood is a sharp-witted look into Vivienne’s creative process and her life’s journey from 1970s punk protests to fierce independent global figure. Westwood sits alongside Gucci, Dior, and McQueen—but only Vivienne still owns and runs her empire. Today she fights to maintain her brand’s integrity and legacy as it expands to open flagship stores in fashion capitals Paris and New York in the face of global consumerism.
