In the 1970s, Vivienne Westwood and her partner Malcolm McLaren gained attention for designing clothes that captured the zeitgeist of the punk movement. Later, Westwood struck out on her own, and in 1989 Women's Wear Daily Publisher John Fairchild crowned her one of "the six best designers in the world." This online exhibit from the Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) explores different views of Westwood's work during the 1980s. The exhibit is divided into three sections, including "On the Runway" and "Streets and On TV". Here visitors can see some of her clothing ensembles, including her work for the pop group Bow Wow Wow. The site's "Extras" section includes several music videos that feature Westwood's clothing designs and a timeline of her various activities. Finally, the site also includes a digital version of the exhibit brochure and a list of related websites.
