Vivienne Westwood, London, 1988

“The picture was made in Vivienne Westwood’s South London council house - ironically predicting the Queen of British fashion she would become. The decoration of the flat was archetypically 1970’s more punk than couture. Many of the greatest creative talents were nurtured in similar environments. Environments that allowed artists to survive on very little money, but to have the time needed for the evolution of their creativity. It is having the opportunity to make work , above the environment that it is made in, that determines the quality and cultural value of creativity.”
