Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000038325
I was so upset with what was going on in the world. I just couldn't stand the idea of being people tortured and that we even had such a thing as war. I hated the older generation, who had not done anything about it. Punk was a call-to-arms for me. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000053727
I've got a real sense of three-dimensional geometry. I can look at a flat piece of fabric and know that if I put a slit in it and make some fabric travel around a square, then when you lift it up it will drape in a certain way, and I can feel how that will happen. -- Vivienne Westwood

Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000153534
It's a philosophy of life. A practice. If you do this, something will change, what will change is that you will change, your life will change, and if you can change you, you can perhaps change the world. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000153535
We have got to change our ethics and our financial system and our whole way of understanding the world. It has to be a world in which people live rather than die; a sustainable world. It could be great. -- Vivienne Westwood

The bravery shown by Azza Suleiman who dared to stand up for another woman who was being beaten, and paid a heavy price in doing so, is both awe-inspiring and humbling. -- Vivienne Westwood

Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000153549
I talk to fashion designers and say I want some money to save the rainforest, and they say, 'Oh, I agree with you completely Vivienne. Yes, climate change, it's definitely happening,' but they don't feel that they can do anything about it; they don't even think 'Well let's stop it!' -- Vivienne Westwood

Home, more than anything, means warmth and bed. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000153554
I don't have space to enter into the examples or the history of this, so I'm left with having to make the bold statement that culture is extinct. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000153555
I'm the proof - you can't throw away tradition. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000153556

Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000153557

Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000153569
The reason why I am proud of my part in the punk movement is that I think it really did implant a message that was already there. The hippies told it to me, but punk made it something cool for people to stand up for, which is that we do not believe government, that we are against government. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000153570
There's always a polemic in my clothes. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000153571

Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000153572
Art should never be sociological; it has got to be timeless. It's got to be your vision and how you can represent the world you see. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000153575
If you ask me what I think people should be getting next season, I'll tell you what I'd like them to buy - nothing. I'd like people to stop buying and buying and buying. -- Vivienne Westwood

Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000153577
I own my own company, so I've never had businessmen telling me what to do or getting worried if something doesn't sell. I've always had my own access to the public, because I started off making my clothes for a little shop and so I've always had people buying them. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000153578
The muscular, athletic type is not representative of the human race, who are varied in their physique. -- Vivienne Westwood

Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000153582

Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000153592
I just think people should invest in the world. Don't invest in fashion, but invest in the world. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000153593
I wish you didn't have to design so often. Try to do quality and cut down on quantity. I think fashion is very, very important. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000153594
I have a company, and I've got to think about that. I'm trying to do my best there, and that's a much harder task. We recycle as much as possible, and we conserve. But I've always been one to save everything - I even walk up stairs on the very inside or the very outside to not wear out the tread. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000153596
The hippie movement politicized my generation. When it ended, we all started looking back at our own history, looking, in my case, for motives of rebellion. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000153597
I have been asked what would I ban immediately if I could. Advertising. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000153598
The sexiest people are thinkers. Nobody's interested in somebody who's just vain with a hole in their head, talking about the latest thing - there is no latest thing. It's all rubbish. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000153599
My clothes have a story. They have an identity. They have a character and a purpose. That's why they become classics. Because they keep on telling a story. They are still telling it. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000153601
Fasion is about eventually becoming naked. -- Vivienne Westwood

Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000153603
I try to concentrate on quality clothing and accessories that are worth having, and to get my people to take fewer trips by air and stay longer each time they travel. It's more human, especially if they take time to visit an art gallery while there. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000153604

Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000153615
We moved into the back, made it into a little 50s sitting room and started to sell the records. We had an immediate success. For one thing, these Teddy Boys were thrilled to buy the records. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000153616
The age in which we live, this non-stop distraction, is making it more impossible for the young generation to ever have the curiosity or discipline ... because you need to be alone to find out anything. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000153617

Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000153620
There is no hierarchy of values any more. Real progress is due mainly to human genius, and that's rare, and usually stems from a real elite, from a hierarchy. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000153621
I think it is terribly important to have opinions, and to think. We live in a world of action without thought. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000153623
I disagree with everything I used to say. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000156271
I'm always attracted to people who interest me. They've got to be people who are really true to themselves somehow, and who are always trying to do something that makes their life more interesting, or better, or something for somebody else. They're interested in people. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000161263
I do think if you aim for quality, it's not so much about consumerism. The idea is 'Buy less, choose well, make it last,' -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000198064
It's true the punk fashion itself was iconographic: rips and dirt, safety pins, zips, slogans, and hairstyles. These motifs were so iconic in themselves - motifs of rebellion. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000204675
You've got to invest in the world, you've got to read, you've got to go to art galleries, you've got to find out the names of plants. You've got to start to love the world and know about the whole genius of the human race. We're amazing people. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000233876
I do not approve of museums trying just to get people to come in. Whistler was very, very clear on this. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000272240
The fight is no longer between the classes or between rich and poor but between the idiots and the eco-conscious. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000314819
Fashion is very important. It is life-enhancing and, like everything that gives pleasure, it is worth doing well. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000318108
I've got a terrible memory; it's probably because I'm always concentrating on what I'm doing now. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000332779
The best night of my life was watching the Japanese Noh theater. I've only seen it once, but even saying it now, I think, 'How can I ever have this experience again?' It was so mesmerizing, so complicated and so primordial; I could not believe it. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000335640
Journalists are usually quite jealous people, especially of intellectuals who are supposed to be in fashion. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000379811
More people should read books. It's the most concentrated experience you can have. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000379904
Real art has been ... what's the word? Kidnapped? No, that's not it. But, OK, kidnapped by business. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000394432
If you see everything from the point of view of women being victims in some way, you don't see the wood for the trees. It is better to be a person than a woman. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000444385
Economists treat economics as if it is a pure science divorced from the facts of life. The result of this false accountancy is a willful confusion under cover of which industry wreaks its havoc scot-free and ignores the environmental cost. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000462863
I'm different from any other designer, businesswise, in that I've built this company up and I own it. I never had business hype behind me to promote my image ... My image is real ... I have never had marketing people telling me what to do. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000489337
I've always had my own access to the public, because I started off making my clothes for a little shop, and so I've always had people buying them. I could always sell a few, even if I couldn't sell a lot, and somehow my business grew because people happened to like it. I'm in a fortunate position. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000493028
I am always trying to find fabrics that are more friendly to the environment - working with Virgin Atlantic, they managed to research into this and find more eco fabrics. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000505771
There is a real connection between culture and climate change. We all have a part to play and if you engage with life, you will get a new set of values, get off the consumer treadmill, and start to think, and it is these great thinkers who will rescue the planet. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000546943
Prince Charles is definitely my hero; he uses his position to do only good in this world. -- Vivienne Westwood

The young Japanese, especially, love to wear the latest thing and when they come to London they head for my shops as part of what they want to find in Britain. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000656070
I didn't know how a working-class girl like me could possibly make a living in the art world -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000706742
The main message of Climate Revolution is that climate change is caused by the rotten financial system we've got, designed to create poverty and rip off any profits for a small amount of rich people. Meanwhile, it destroys the earth. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000712079
I don't watch television and I rarely go to the cinema, but I recently watched 'The King's Speech' on a flight. It was so beautiful and so simple. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000742784
However, because Britain is young and exciting, I did show my second line here once or twice. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000750121
At one time, I was very angry. I even treated fashion like a kind of crusade: you were either with us or against us, that kind of feeling. Now I know we need ideas, not kicking down a door. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000761752
I have too much product, and I'm trying to rein it in and sell more of my main collection. I wish you didn't have to design so often; it would be good if you could keep on selling the same things for a few years and not have to do new things all the time. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000765131
If you wear clothes that don't suit you, you're a fashion victim. You have to wear clothes that make you look better. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000796920
The thing that makes my clothes really different is that, number one, they are really great designs; they're not tacky; they are very professional; the design is made from lots of decisions. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000821287
We are so conformist; nobody is thinking. We are all sucking up stuff; we have been trained to be consumers, and we are all consuming far too much. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000826755
The last people with any ideas are young people. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000856115
The only possible effect one can have on the world is through unpopular ideas. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000895829
When we started to do punk, we put all of these things together to create the look of an urban guerrilla - a rebel. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000909590
I don't think punk fashion is a specter or overemphasized - it made a big impression, as there had never been anything like it before. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000916329
I'm a fashion designer and people think, what do I know? -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000922483
I really don't like women who try to be men. All these politicians, I think they're horrendous. We could have a brilliant future, but we have this terrible male vision of destroying everything. They'd better sort themselves out and become more womanly. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000937241
I don't feel very comfortable defending my fashion except to say that people don't have to buy it. You do have to consume. You have to live. If you've got the money to be able to afford it, then it's really good to buy something from me, but don't buy too much. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000955430
Buy less. Choose well. Make it last. Quality, not quantity. Everybody's buying far too many clothes. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000957044
I don't care if you get up in the morning and don't wash, don't put any make-up on, don't do your hair, even, but you have to have clothes if you want to look different. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000967937
We based the look on rock 'n roll right from the beginning. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000969967
Britishness is just a way of putting things together and a certain don't care attitude about clothes. You don't care, you just do it and it looks great. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 000970843
I urge everyone to be trendsetters for Azza Suleiman. Let's make it one fashion which everyone will want to follow. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 001005091
Don't just eat McDonald's, get something a bit better. Eat a salad. That's what fashion is. It's something that is a bit better. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 001015339
If Mrs Merkel wants to wear Westwood, I can promise that I will design clothes for her that will make her look chic, refined and influential. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 001024983
I think some people would love to be able to make the clothes I make - and of course, I do influence them, but they keep simplifying, and minimalism doesn't quite work. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 001032656
I very rarely watch my own fashion shows, but the makeup for my Fall 2011 show was just brilliant. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 001044447
I have certain signatures, certain cutting principles. It could be a raw-edged seam; it could be leaving the lining of sheepskin exposed so it's not perfectly finished. I invent new ways to do it, but the end goal is always the same. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 001066328
My clothes are very popular in Japan. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 001067861
The best fashion accessory is a book. -- Vivienne Westwood

I am in my own head most of the time. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 001087731
What I remember as a child is that other kids didn't care about suffering. I always did. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 001094218
I remember reading a book set in the future, it was written in the 1870s projecting to 1920, and this time traveler said you couldn't tell the difference between men and women. He saw what was coming. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 001094364
In the 18th century, if women wanted to travel and they dressed as a man, people would not look twice. Your clothes said everything. Also there were masters and servants swapping clothes. You could be anything, your clothes told everything! -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 001094846
My son has followed fashion since he was a punk. He and I agree that fashion is about sex. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 001117996
Fashion is here to help make people look very important. If they have good taste and choose what suits them, I give them options on how they can do that. It's always sexy, and it's always with the same result: making women look fantastic. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 001139250
Nothing is costed properly and it's destroying the earth. We need to re-educate people that what is good for the planet is good for the financial system. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 001139914
I've always felt heroic about my life ... As a child, I remember little girls in the playground moaning about how boys could do more than they could. I didn't think that was the case at all. My parents didn't treat me as a girl. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 001166007
People have never looked so ugly as they do today. We just consume far too much. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 001177689
I am attracted to people who make this effort in knowing what suits them - they are individual and stylish. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 001198032
If you're too big to fit into fashion, then you just have to do your own fashion. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 001198241
What I'm always trying to say to the consumer is: buy less, choose well, make it last. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 001228675
I always tried to do things by example, even though I was not a very good mother regarding routines and family life. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 001264934
Personally I'm not a feminist, as I can't stand puritans. -- Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood Quotes : pic 001282076
The French have got taste. -- Vivienne Westwood
