With unprecedented access, Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist is the first film to encompass the remarkable story of Vivienne Westwood’s life, her fashion, her personality, her activism and her cultural importance. Since igniting the punk movement with ex-partner and Sex Pistols’ manager Malcolm McLaren, Dame Vivienne Westwood has been redefining British fashion for over 40 years, and is responsible for creating many of the most distinctive looks of our time.


The film blends archive content and insightful interviews with Vivienne’s fascinating network of collaborators, guiding us on her journey from a childhood in post-war Derbyshire to the runways of Paris and Milan. Westwood has openly denounced the new documentary about her saying that the film does not at all focus on her activism but instead is “made up of archive fashion footage.” Even so, the documentary remains an intimate and poignant homage to one of the true cultural icons of our time, as she fights to maintain her brand’s integrity, her principles and her legacy in a business driven by consumerism, profit and global expansion.
