Film Fest Gent - Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist

"While well known for her collaboration with The Sex Pistols, legendary designer Westwood has enjoyed a long career beyond them and still has an iconoclastic personal style and exacting eye for how her designs are rendered. Her story offers many other fascinating threads to explore, like her environmental activism." (The Guardian)

"With exclusive, unprecedented access, 'Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist' is the first film to encompass the remarkable story of Vivienne Westwood's life, her fashion, her personality, her activism and her cultural importance." (Dogwoof)

"There are many words that you can use to describe Ms. Westwood (born 1941), an early punk rock tastemaker and merchandizer turned global couture brand. Boring certainly is not one of them." (New York Times)
