Cannot predict success of my creation: Vivienne Westwood

Aug 19 2013, 7:10am CDT | by IANS

London, Aug 19 (IANS) Designer Dame Vivienne Westwood doesn't focus on fashion trends and designs on the basis of her own tastes. She says she cannot predict the success of her creations.

London, Aug 19 — Designer Dame Vivienne Westwood doesn't focus on fashion trends and designs on the basis of her own tastes. She says she cannot predict the success of her creations.

"I must admit, I don't follow anything that happens on the runways, I have no idea what other people are doing," femalefirst.co.uk quoted Westwood as saying.

"I only went to one single fashion show last season in Paris, and only so photographers would get a picture of my t-shirt supporting (WikiLeaks founder) Julian Assange," she added.

The 72-year-old also admits being clueless about women's reaction to her collection.

"To be honest, I've never wondered what women want from fashion. I only create based on my own tastes and I'm incapable of predicting the success (or failure) of a collection," said Westwood.

"I have had certain intuitions - my Victorian corsets, for instance, worked well but it was a bit risky at the time. I just think I owe it all to luck rather than the power of prediction," added Westwood.

The fashion legend cites iconic French designer Yves Saint Laurent, who passed away in June 2008, as one of her all time favourite designers. She says no one has quite met his high standards yet.

"I try to avoid the question of whether fashion is art. But I'm still tempted to give a simple answer: it depends on who's doing it. In my opinion, only Yves Saint Laurent has ever been able to manage it," said Westwood.

"Everything he did was always perfect, always a triumph. He metamorphosed women into real animated artworks," she added.

I’m So Surprised Plaid Is A Huge Fall Fashion Trend (Said No One Ever)

Aug 27 2014 8:30am CDT | Source: Bride Finds

Surprise! Plaid is one of fall 2014's biggest fashion trends. Obviously, I'm being sarcastic because every fall--without fail--plaid is a trend. This year is no exception thanks to designers like Tommy Hilfiger, rag + bone, Marc Jacobs, Vivienne Westwood and loads more who sent tons of checks and tartans down the runway. And even though we've seen this trend many times over, it's still one of those prints that makes us really excited for the start of a new season. There ...
