VIVIENNE WESTWOOD's SHOW: A TOY BOX OF MAGIC FROM VERSAILLES TO URBAN PUNK BRILLIANTLY BROUGHT ALIVE. A fairy tale on a bicycle

SOMETHING SENSIBLE EMERGES BUT THERE IS A TWIST AGAIN
Whatever madness is going on in the play box of Vivienne Westwood's show, there is beauty and structure too as she tells the story of inspirational people who she has admired, through her artistic hand.  She takes risks. She is British and the whole thing may fail, but there she is pulling the whole thing together imaginatively.  Vivienne fully admits to sometimes liking her own designs and sometimes not.  She has the touch of  the 'mother hen' in her that wants us all not to be so stupid.  She gives lectures on greed and ecology, dreams and creation.  The show combined everything from the surreal to the real in a true beauty, clashing colours and ideas.  I loved it. Enter the land of fairy tales, nursery rhymes, and punk slashed with the grandeur of the court of Versailles. You are descending to hell and there at the end of it are gold sparkly shoes, in giant proportions.
