Vivienne Westwood is a renegade. Of course she’s pretty well known for fashion, and her penchant for romances with younger men, but now she is garnering attention for her DIY manifesto and her views on global warming.
It’s brave of anyone to be the outsider to consumerism and limit their purchases, but for a fashion queen to advocate making your own clothes and barely spending in the shops – or only buying high quality things, occasionally, is really brave. Of course at this point she doesn’t have to worry much about her income, so she is in a pretty cozy spot.
Her interview on Jonathan Ross was great. I hope to be half of the eccentric goddess she is when I reach her current age. I would love to be one of her minions.
