Trivia

The documentary was denounced by Vivienne Westwood via her Twitter, before it even premiered at Sundance: "Lorna Tucker asked to film Vivienne's activism and followed her around for a couple of years, but there's not even five minutes activism in the film, instead there's lots of old fashion footage which is free and available online. It's a shame because the film is mediocre, and Vivienne and Andreas are not." See more »

Westwood commercial

This rather tedious documentary is revealing of the fashion industry but do these phony narcissists think that they look cool while having the appearance of having dressed in the dark in a thrift store?
