Dame Vivienne Westwood: punk, icon, provocateur and one of the most influential originators in recent history.

With exclusive, unprecedented access, this is the first film to encompass the remarkable story of Vivienne Westwood’s life, fashion, personality, activism, and cultural importance as she fights to maintain her brand‘s integrity, her principles – and her legacy.

Lorna Tucker’s documentary is an intimate and poignant homage to one of the true cultural icons of our time.

‘Westwood shines, not only as a remarkable trend-setting designer, but also as an inspirational individual’

‘Westwood proves a spiky and evasive presence in this entertaining docu-portrait’
