“She was like our Queen”


Since igniting the punk movement with her former partner and Sex Pistols’ manager Malcolm McLaren, Dame Vivienne Westwood has been redefining British fashion for decades with her signature wit and unwavering activism. Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist sees the sartorial iconoclast reflect on over 40 years of revolutionary work — from postwar Derbyshire to the runways of Milan — intimately following her journey through existential crises, major successes, storied love affairs and political demonstrations. This fascinating documentary blends archival footage, beautifully-crafted reconstructions and spirited interviews with the Dame herself.
