Vivienne Westwood zählt zu den bedeutensten britischen Modedesignerinnen. Seit Jahrzehnten überrascht, ja schockiert, sie stets aufs Neue. Sie erfindet nicht nur Mode – längst steht die frühere „Queen of Punk Rock“, die sich auf diesen Titel nicht reduzieren lassen will, auch für politischen Aktivismus.
