NUMBER 3: Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist
Given that Vivienne Westwood passed away this year, we thought it would be appropriate to share this Disney documentary on her life, from her work with the Sex Pistols at her store to the iconic clothing items she created. A refined fashion designer for over 40 years reflects on what she has achieved, from her childhood journey, to the runways of Paris & Milan.
