THE DAME VIVIENNE WESTWOOD

VIVIENNE WESTWOOD

Often called the Grand Dame of British fashion Dame Vivienne Westwood’s name is synonymous with punk, rebellion and subversive British fashion,  Born in Derbyshire in 1941, Westwood has become one of the most loved style icons in British fashion history. Starting her design career in 1971 at 430 Kings Road, her design career has been a tale of true British style, eccentricity and rebellion.

Twice British designer of the year and still a rebel with many causes including recently donating 1 million pounds to help stop climate change, Dame Vivienne is one of the most influential and original designers of our time.

In 1989, Andres Kronthaler came to London where he worked with Vivienne Westwood on her collection. Since then, Kronthaler stayed on with Vivienne Westwood where his role progressed and grew, collaborating and working with Westwood to develop subsequent collections.

Kronthaler and Westwood got married in 1993. Over the years, Kronthaler has chosen to be a silent partner, preferring to take a less public role but their partnership is nevertheless one of fashion’s most formidable. While Westwood was unconventional and challenging, Kronthaler was driven by quality and progress. Together, they were able to stimulate, support and encourage one another. Recently Westwood officially renamed her Gold Label as “Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood.” The line is now in honor of the designer’s longtime design partner and husband.
