Vivienne Westwood to be honored at the Dallas Contemporary’s spring-summer gala.

“I am a fashion designer and activist. You all know what I’m up to, I use fashion as a vehicle for activism to stop climate change and mass extinction of life on earth.” Vivienne Westwood. Who in the fashion world does not know this pioneer? Known for shaping the style for modern punk and new wave music in the late 1970’s, Westwood rose to fame as she molded the Six Pistols signature style and brought this subculture to the forefront making it both accessible and elevated.

Throughout the years, she has reinvented and remained relevant, by staying ahead of the curve but always maintaining her signature raw angst with her designs. Today, she has become one of the most outspoken and fearless advocates for the planet, using her fashion career and fame to speak on behalf of the greater good for eco consciousness and now, her work comes to Texas!
