Why Vivienne Westwood Doesn’t Read Fashion Magazines
Vivienne Westwood just released several photographs by Craig McDean for Interview Magazine. The designer looks phenomenal while sporting some of her edgiest pieces. In a sit-down with Interview, she discussed that she has no patience for fashion magazines and here’s why:
“Well, I’m very much a literary person. And my fashion always tells a story somehow. I never look at fashion magazines. I find them incredibly boring. To me, reading a fashion magazine is the last thing I need to do. I’ve got books I need to read. More people should read books. It’s the most concentrated experience you can have. You know, all those incredible geniuses concentrated their lifetimes’ experiences in books. It’s much better than chattering away to somebody who’s never read anything and knows nothing at all.”
Her massively creative fashion and unique, confident perspective makes London’s “First Lady of Punk” one of the greatest style icons of our age. One quote from the photo set really embodies how Vivienne’s fashion and attitude blend into the perfect disposition: ”I think clothes kind of enhance your experience of life.” Well said, Lady Vivienne.
