Considering Vivienne Westwood’s illustrious fashion career, it’s hard to believe that the designer spent a good portion of her adult life as a children’s school teacher. It wasn’t until she began a relationship with British musician Malcolm McLaren in 1965 that Westwood began making her famously boundary-pushing clothes to sell at their shared store, Let It Rock (now known as World’s End).

Today, her work is instantly recognizable for its edgy, politically-charged undertones and free-spirited sensibility.
