Favorite Designer ① Vivienne Westwood

I must say that my most favorite fashion designer is Vivienne Westwood.
I have been following her work for 12 years now.
I don't own any big name brands except for VW... She surprises and inspires me with every collection she puts out.

Dame Vivienne Westwood (born April 8th 1941) is a British fashion designer largely responsible for bringing modern punk and new wave fashion into the mainstream.
The legendary "Crown Hat"

The most loved "Love Jacket"
The historical "Naomi Falling"

Carrie Bradshaw from "Sex and the City"
Vivienne Westwood is very popular in Asia, especially in Japan. I don't think she was well known enough here in the US til the movie "Sex and the City" featured her wedding dress.
I would like to see her more well known here in the US so there can be a possibility of more stores carrying her fashion here, but at the same time, I don't want her fashion to be too commercial.
Her legend carries on...
