About this deal

Her career has successfully spanned five decades and her work has influenced millions across the world.

I’ve been a supporter of Leonard, a Native American who has been wrongly imprisoned for 35 years, for a long time.

Westwood advanced from OBE to DBE in the 2006 New Year's Honours List for services to fashion,and had thrice earned the award for British Designer of the Year. At last, I wanted to cry out, a celebrity who recognizes that politicians only care about themselves and who cares about the earth and who will actually do things about the things she cares about. Very motivating read, to Vivennes's way of thinking and the time she devotes for environmental causes. I decided to donate some money to the Green party, but now they are thinking of giving it back, having discovered I have a Luxembourg company that minimises my tax liabilities. Vivienne does not talk about Fashion as long as it's not connected to her second (if not first) love in her life which is climate revolution and politics.

I will surely remember this book but found it naive sometimes to believe you can do anything to influence few thousands people in the world who rule 7 billion. Not only was Vivienne Westwood a punk icon and fashion inventor, she was also an activist for climate change and a major supporter and friend of Julian Assange. remarked many times by Lee and John as the the one who introduced punk to fashion in the 70's and 80's. hungry to learn more I planned to dive one era backwards to understand different inspirations and fashion world back then. What we have here then is a story of the last six years of Climate Revolution and the journey that got us there.Honestly, just from reading this book, I can tell that Vivienne Westwood is a wholly genuine person. Her thinking on culture and the importance of engaging with the world to develop culture (not consumption) was very clear and inspiring. This online magazine fuses the best high-end, progressive and luxury brands as well as independent designers. I enjoyed the diary, I have learnt a lot and was definitely inspired to open up to the world and culture more.

While it's not a comprehensive biography--we have Ian Kelly to thank for that--it is as close as we can get to the inner workings of her mind. She lives a busy, busy life - and as she records her daily routine we begin to get to know this woman - in an intimate productive way.

Fashion designer, political activist, national icon: Vivienne Westwood sets down her unique vision of the world in her blog, Get A Life. Find your next must-read with the Serpent’s Tail newsletter and discover gripping crime and mystery from Viper Books.

At yoga, I suddenly had the stunning revelation that Alice in Wonderland, a book written by Lewis Carroll, actually proves Einstein’s theory of relativity. Dame Vivienne Westwood is one of the icons of our age: fashion designer, activist, co-creator of punk, global brand and grandmother. While the diary was written, primarily, with the intention of warning people of the danger we’re in from climate change (a subject that feels particularly pertinent given fracking’s recent UK go-ahead, despite a rejection from Lancashire council), it is, as Vivienne puts it, also a great thing to do for yourself. Sometimes u may feel that her diaries are very hectic hence even more I'm proud of myself to get to the end of it and not dropping earlier.

Then again, Vivienne might be hanging out with her friend Pamela Anderson, or in India for Naomi Campbell‘s birthday party, or watching Black Sabbath in Hyde Park with Sharon Osbourne.
