Vivienne Westwood is the British queen of fashion. Since 1970, she unceasingly deconstructs couture only to reinvent it. What drives Vivienne? A hatred of any kind of conformity. Vivienne Westwood isn't a classical fashion designer. She has the soul of a revolutionary. With her corsets and fake-derrières, she has revived the Spirit of 1789. An eternal agent provocateur, Dame Westwood remains subversive and provocative like the Punk movement she styled in the seventies. This film is an intimate portrait of the Woman, the Artist preparing for two fashion shows, the intellectual and the militant that she is today, still going strong at 70, flame-haired fashion designer Vivienne Westwood remains a trendsetter and a determined non-conformist. The film makers set out to follow her for a year from September 2009, and we see her, as well as some of the more private sides of her life. It includes a visit to her legendary London shop, World's End, where in archive clips from the Seventies we see punks queueing up to buy. What comes over very strongly in the film is that Vivienne is an endearing mixture of the anarchic as she spouts from her much touted but odd anti-propaganda manifesto and down to earth as she talks very directly to camera about her childhood and her mother and about learning to knit. Ever the devil at the end of the film she tells us "My advice at the moment is to buy less, even though I'm a fashion designer. But if you do buy anything, choose well and you'd better buy Vivienne Westwood."
