Vivienne Westwood is now remembered as one of the most important and vindictive designers in the United Kingdom. Creator of the punk aesthetic, she dominated the London underground scene in the 1970s. She has shown us, thanks to her strong involvement with sustainability, that fashion shows can be platforms for debate.
Last February 16, the London Cathedral was filled with celebrities and very relevant names in fashion with a common goal: to say goodbye to one of the best British designers: the queen of punk.
As it could not be otherwise, the tribute to the British designer became a fashion catwalk in honor of her style, wearing tartan prints, black pieces, punk-inspired accessories and iconic pieces of the designer. Victoria Beckham, Helena Bonham, Anna Wintour, and Kate Moss were some of the familiar faces.
In addition, the British Council confirmed that the London fashion week has been dedicated to Vivienne Westwood, highlighting her work with the following words: “giving birth to and defining punk by changing it worldwide”.
From Arena Martinez, we love to share stories of women who are a reference in fashion. Innovator, precursor of sustainable fashion and political activist, Vivienne was a woman who went beyond the boundaries of fashion.
For Arena Martinez these women are a source of inspiration, ushing us every day to keep moving forward with the brand, claiming our values, and reinterpreting fashion from different motifs, in our case, art.
If something has been clear to us about this great British designer, after talking about her also our blog “Vivienne Westwood, a reference of activism in anti-fashion” is that fashion is fun and creativity, a means of expression, and from our brand we invite you to have fun with our garments.
In honor of Vivianne, we want to highlight the Words suit, one of the most daring and daring of Arena Martinez.
