Vivienne Westwood: Because I Dig Her


Ms. Moon said...

This gives me great hope.

She's looking like the chick from Sweeny Tod... (Tim Berton's version), meets Lucille Ball.

A funky, scary coolness...

Hey SB, how are you? She is the coolest loved it when she turned up in see through dress with no knickers to 10 Downing St, or was it to meet the Queen, anyway who cares it was done with real attitude.xxxxx

I had to google her. I knew the name but not why. Funny. I once went to school for fashion design and knew and cared. I wore designer clothes before the masses bothered. I had a personal buyer. Then I met my husband and got married and lived in poverty and ignored all of it because it was too frustrating to dream.

It's an awesome portrait of her though. I want to be her when I grow up.

Ms. Moon,
Me too!

Definitely funky cool.

North West London Girl,
I missed you. Glad you are back. That was hysterical when Vivienne met the Queen.

That's a trip. I didn't know that about you.

Love to all!

You know she still lives in a tiny council flat (which would be like equivalent to an apartment in a New York housing project)... in south London.... they say she "never sold out"... but she WAS selling ripped t-shirts at the Sex/Seditionnaries boutique in the 1970s at the equivalent of £250 a pop ~ which to me shows pisstaking business sense if anyone ever had it~!!... a lady of the most interesting attributes, in my opinion!!
And I wonder how much money she's worth!!

Sarcastic Bastard said...

That's interesting. Thanks for the info.



The Subversive Librarian said...

I dig her, too.

Sweden said...

is it true she has a child with the late malcom mclaren?????

Sarcastic Bastard said...

Yes, it is true. He is also in the fashion biz.

I think I look a bit like that.
I loved your Dear Universe blog comment about Bo. Thank you. Sorry I haven't been here. Just feeling too vulnerable and weird lately.
But you always make me smile.
I'm so glad you love Bo.
He loves you too Auntie SB!
