Vivienne Westwood, or Dame Viv as she’s often called, is one of the industry’s biggest living legends. From her punk-era Sex boutique in London with Malcolm McLaren in the ’70s (which outfitted the Sex Pistols) to eventually designing Carrie Bradshaw‘s wedding gown in Sex and the City, saying she’s had a fascinating career is an understatement.
If you’re like us and can’t get enough of the designer and environmental activist, you’re in luck: Westwood is collaborating on an authorized biography that is due out in October of next year. The memoir will be written partially by Westwood in her own voice, with the rest of the story being told in the words of her friends, family and collaborators. With her list of longtime cohorts including Naomi Campbell, Pamela Anderson and Jerry Hall, we’re certain that this will be a captivating read.
