Vivienne Westwood - Red Label

"Fashion is very important.
It is life-enhancing and, like everything that gives pleasure,
it is worth doing well.."

I thought I'd never get around to doing a post on the one & only Miss Vivienne Westwood...
As my own personal fashion icon I knew that there would come a time where I could showcase my passion for this woman & her work. As her Red Label line is just hot off the catwalk at this years London Fashion Week I feel that this is the time. 

From an early age up to coming into the fashion world Westwood is someone who has always fascinated me. With her wacky sense of style & vibrant red hair, I always wondered what went on inside her head to create such timeless pieces that can be worn in a variety of different settings.

Taking those steps into my first ever Vivienne Westwood boutique I was in awe. Countless drapes of beautiful fabrics lined the rails along with racks of shoes in designs that I didn't even know could be thought up. Bags in a variety of shapes/styles & colours amazed me, not to mention the jewelry that is designed around the legendary orb that we all know & love today.

She is a legend in her own art & everyone knows it. She will go down in history as being one of the best designers of all time, & I'm very happy to have been around to not just see her work but to wear it also.

Below is a few of my favorite images from this years LFW - Red Label Collection.
