Every fashion-inclined person must be aware of Vivienne Westwood. Some describe her as The Queen of the Catwalk who never fails to bewilder shoppers with her eclectic mix of clothing creations and her crazy orange hair, some call her the grandma of punk and fancy dresses. But many fashionistas know her as one of the best designers to have come out of Great Britain to date who owns exclusive stores in Leeds and who designs costume pieces of jewelries that are adored by the buying public.
I have not been to the UK yet, I plan to spend a visit next year, but based from what I´m reading, Vivienne Westwood´s stores are beautifully perfect a setting for vibrant and exuberant pieces that shopping at her store is a splendid experience. Unfortunately, for many of us enjoying a marvelous ambiance while shopping for Vivienne Westwood jewelry and clothes isn´t always possible, so we turn to online retailers for access of this designer brand.
As I was browsing the net today reading reviews about this jewelry, I stumbled on a blog post at Silver Tree featuring the timeline history of Vivienne Westwood. The infographic on the lady was part of the website´s celebration of their newly added range of Vivienne Westwood jewelry.
You think you know more about this gifted British fashion designer than her bright orange hair, stunning runway collections and custom jewelry? Not me! I sure know that she designed the iconic wedding dress that Carrie Bradshaw wore in Sex and the City (Oh, how I loved the dress!), but I had no idea that Naomi Campbell´s famous stumble on Vivienne Westwood catwalk while wearing a prototype of Patrick Cox 9 inch heel actually launched Cox´s career as a designer, nor did I know that Westwood dropped out of fashion school in the 80´s to pursue a teaching career. Now, I can just like her more considering that I too love education and fashion.
I think it´s apparent that if you love the brand, you should also understand the background of the designer behind it. The infographic history of Vivienne Westwood is definitely a fun read!
