Vivienne Westwood, 1980-89, at FIT

To many, Vivienne Westwood is synonymous with the wedding dress that Carrie Bradshaw wore in Sex & The City. From Vivienne Westwood’s roots as a designer who addressed fashion from outside the mainstream to her awards as British Designer of the Year (1990, 1991), she has transformed the fashion world by blending street culture with couture. Whether it be traditional English fabrics with modern cuts or a revival the corset, The Fashion Institute of Technology pays tribute to Vivienne Westwood with an exhibition of exclusive garments and an array of photographs, magazines, and videos that capture the essence of the designer.
