With special guest Jordan Mooney
78 Mins plus Q&A / 2018 / UK
With exclusive, unprecedented access, this is the first film to encompass the remarkable story of Vivienne Westwood's life; her fashion, her personality and her activism. Since igniting the punk movement with Malcolm McLaren, Westwood has been redefining British fashion for over 40 years. The film blends archive and insightful interviews with her collaborators, guiding us from a childhood in postwar Derbyshire to the runways of Paris and Milan. An intimate homage to a true cultural icon of our time.
Tonight’s screening of the remarkable documentary about Vivienne Westwood's life will be followed by a Q&A with Jordan Mooney, one of punk’s most-fetishised poster women. Jordan’s pivotal role at the hub of Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren’s riotous (Sex and Seditionaries era) world was vital to the looks of bands like the Sex Pistols and Adam and the Ants. Mooney will reflect upon her experiences of working with Westwood and McClaren, acting for Derek Jarman and generally living a life of breaking the rules.
