Vivienne Westwood (Little People, BIG DREAMS) (Hardcover)
When Vivienne was a young woman, she wasn't sure how a working class girl from England could make a living in the art world. But after discovering her passion for design and jewellery making, she erupted onto the fashion scene with a bang.
Vivienne's designs became iconic, and she became famous for letting her clothes speak for themselves. This accessibly written book helps introduce young Vivienne and her passion to young readers everywhere, and the book's bold design is true to Westwood's own punk style.
This moving book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the designer's life.
