Vivienne-Westwood-2011 1.-vivienne-westwood Vivienne-Westwood-001Vivienne Westwood is an English fashion designer and businesswoman, largely responsible for bringing modern punk and new wave fashions into the mainstream. She has made a name for herself in the fashion industry for modern movements in the 80’s and being a little bit crazy. Looking over personal portraits of her, I realised Id would have to pick out the really stylised ones, as the other ones were too simple. If Im going to try and look like her it has to be obvious otherwise theres no point, the other problem is that she is much older then me.
Although it could be an interesting high fashion twist, a young model impersonating a huge character in the fashion world. I could see this working if I had the right clothes, accessories, make-up and a good wig ( or I could be cheeky and photoshop my hair ginger ).
This is definitely one of the more affordable ideas, something that could be done and not cost a fortune and if it doesn’t work then either re-shoot or move onto something else. The thing Im wanting to do more is just experiment with my idea of identity, have fun with it. Play as many crazy characters as possible, almost like a ‘Schizophrenic Fashionista’.
