Vivienne Westwood Catwalk: The Complete Collections
By Alexander Fury
Alexander Fury’s Vivienne Westwood Catwalk presents us with a luxurious aesthetic before we have even turned the first page. Richly detailed, this is the first comprehensive overview of Vivienne Westwood’s womenswear collections, from her 1981 debut to today.
One of the most thought-provoking designers in the world – Westwood once declared 'the only reason I'm in fashion is to destroy the word ‘conformity’. Through this celebration of her iconic style we see how she reinvented and challenged the world of fashion. With over 40 years’ worth of designs we see everything from her first runway show to those pieces designed by her husband and long-time collaborator, Andreas Kronthaler.
Each new collection features an introduction by Alexander Fury, and biographies written by the designers themselves. Supporting these is a gallery of 1,350 carefully curated catwalk photographs which showcase hundreds of spectacular clothes, details, accessories, and beauty looks. This book offers a rare opportunity to chart the development of a uniquely creative fashion house that is full of inspiration for the fashion conscious.
