an art stroll with Vivienne Westwood

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.
