Just keep saying it: ‘politicians are criminals’, ‘politicians are criminals’…
About 5 weeks ago Worlds End shop had a visit from one of its favourite customers, Allan Bradbury.
He had come down to London with Gareth & Natasha who are in the process of making a documentary about Allan & his philosophy, to be called ‘Appy Allan’. They were filming his visit to the shop & I met them there. Continue reading
On Sunday we will present our Red Label Autumn/Winter 2015-16 collection in London.
Ahead of the show Vivienne tells us about the Red Label girl, the similarities between them and the message the show will communicate.
Vote Green appears on our show invites and in our film below Vivienne discloses that the Red Label girl will vote green.
I have dug out an old magnetic audio tape I have had for years of a demo recording of ‘Choice’ to share with you.
Choice was a musical project conducted by Vivienne with her then house model/muse Sara Stockbridge in the years 1987-89. Continue reading
First broadcast on London Weekend Television on the 8th April 1990 (Vivienne’s 49th Birthday), Melyvn Bragg introduces a 51 minute documentary about Vivienne Westwood, directed & produced by Gillian Greenwood.
Copied from an old VHS recording & supplied once again by Simon at http://punkpistol-seditionaries.tumblr.com/ this video has a few technical problems in that it tends to jump a bit, normally just when Vivienne or Malcolm are about to make a great revelation to us.
Filmed in the period of the Pagan 5 collection & just before the Portrait collection, there is plenty of footage from the time. Excepts from the Terry Wogan show where the audience & other guests laughed at her designs. A clip from the Dame Edna Everage show where she wears her fig leaf bodysuit & interviews with Malcolm, Jaspen Conran, Peter York & others.
Interesting to see are the staged pieces starring Sara Stockbridge, Suzie Bick & my brother Joe in the black leather armour waistcoat
(I made the illuminating Horns & also the illuminating body harness that Sara wears at the end…Oh,La,La).
There are also clips from the old Nostalgia of Mud shop & the Davies St shop which had only just opened.
There are some other extracts from this documentary on the web if you want to investigate a bit, but not the whole show.
