UK Premiere - Originally produced in 2011. But never before seen by a UK audience until now!
Do it Yourself! follows a year in the life of Vivienne Westwood - A portrait of the Woman, the Artist, the intellectual and the militant that she was.
Vivienne Westwood 1941-2022
Since 1970, Vivian Westwood ceaselessly deconstructed couture only to reinvent it. What drived Vivienne ? A hatred of any kind of conformity. Westwood wasn't a classical fashion designer, she had the soul of a revolutionary. With her corsets and fake-derrières, she revived the Spirit of 1789. An eternal agent provocateur, Dame Westwood remained subversive and provocative like the Punk movement she styled in the seventies until her passing in December 2022.
