Reviews

This wonderful memoir, which is adorned with beautiful images, provides a captivating portrait of a fascinating character * Daily Mail *
An uproarious picaresque romp through Westwood's wild life * Daily Telegraph *
This serious biography explores not only Westwood's life and career but also decades of British history and the way in which the fashion industry has developed. . .I consumed the 500-page biography in gulps, cramming it in and then decelerating to wallow in Kelly's sinuous prose * Business Day's Wanted *
I consumed the 500-page biography in gulps, cramming it in and then decelerating to wallow in Kelly's sinuous prose.In a world where clothes are designed to become unfashionable almost upon wearing them, Vivienne Westwood reminded me of why I'm so drawn to the industry and shows how fashion, as a wearable expression of art, can change the world for the better * Sartorial Reads *
