In the video below, fashion designer Vivienne Westwood shares two of her favourite paintings on display at Tate Britain. Frank Auerbach's 'Oxford Street Building Site' (1959/60) and JM Whistler’s 'Nocturne: Blue and Silver - Cremorne Lights' (1872) have personal significance for the designer.
I don't often post about "celebrity designers", but Westwood certainly embodies our creative and curious mandate. The 71-year-old is an example of how creative experimentation and constant learning are keys to a youthful outlook on life. She keeps a blog—diary entries that she has written longhand that someone else types and then posts—so you can catch a glimpse at her daily life.
