The Grandmother of Punk entered the fashion arena in 1971, showcasing her eccentric, S&M-inspired, slogan-emblazoned clothes in the King's Road store that she ran with her then lover Malcolm McLaren.

In 1981, Westwood launched her signature collection and has since continued to shock and amuse the fashion world with her hard-core Anglomania.
