Fashion in Motion: Vivienne Westwood

April 2004

Fashion in Motion is a series of live catwalk events presented at the V&A. Featuring some of the greatest designers of our time, Fashion in Motion brings catwalk couture to a wider audience by modelling it against the beautiful backdrop of the Museum.

Vivienne Westwood is one of the most iconic fashion designers of the last 30 years. Fashion's most famous rebel has become a major influence on global design, and accompanying the V&A's retrospective celebrating her career, we were honoured to present highlights from one of her collections.

Vivienne Westwood's Gold and Man collections are premiered seasonally at the Paris and Milan Fashion weeks respectively and are now brought to you as part of the V&A's Fashion in Motion series in April 2004.

The Wolsey Angels Appeal

We urgently need your help to raise the £5,000,000 it will cost for the V&A to acquire four Renaissance angels cast for the tomb of Cardinal Wolsey and later in the possession of Henry VIII.
