Vivienne Westwood Inducted Into The Scottish Fashion Awards Hall of Fame
Last night the Scottish Fashion Awards Hall of Fame welcomed Vivienne Westwood to their fold. The designer joins Stella Tennant, Rankin, Albert Watson, Colin McDowell and Sam McKnight who have also been honoured in this way. The founder of the awards Tessa Hartmann said, “[Vivienne] personifies the powerful and subversive originality of British fashion and has done more for Scottish textiles than probably any other designer of her generation. Her brand name is synonymous with the tartan pattern and her fascination for this iconic fabric is unrelenting. By using a mix of different tartans, her ensembles explore the rich depth of colour and diversity of the traditional checked pattern that is adored around the world.” Congratulations, Dame Westwood!
