Trivia

The documentary was denounced by Vivienne Westwood via her Twitter, before it even premiered at Sundance: "Lorna Tucker asked to film Vivienne's activism and followed her around for a couple of years, but there's not even five minutes activism in the film, instead there's lots of old fashion footage which is free and available online. It's a shame because the film is mediocre, and Vivienne and Andreas are not." See more »

If you like Vivienne Westwood you will like this doc.
3 July 2018 | by wargiphoneSee all my reviews

The plain and simple truth! and the #1 thing i like is ALL THE ARCHIVE VIDEO! i ve been collecting for 15years and i avent seen some of the images!

i also emailed them and THEY WANTED TO HELP ME FIND THE SOURCE!

so bored of all those pretty documentary showing what the consumer wants to see!

This is the truth! it is hard to be a carrying business and trying to do things right.

Far from perfect, the brand still goes on and for the first time we can see what fashion really looks likes with ups and down.

If you don t know her life you ll be able to know a bit as well

hands down the best doc made for Vivienne Westwood.
