T+L Reports: Rebel With a Cause

The Victoria and Albert Museum's "Vivienne Westwood" gathers more than 150 creations by the British designer who in the 1970's dressed the Sex Pistols in tartan bondage trousers. Her career may have begun with rubber T-shirts, but it soon progressed to elaborate ball gowns, suits, and ready-to-wear, all of which theatrically reinterpreted historical styles (the corset, the bustle, the hoopskirt). "The only reason I'm in fashion," Westwood told The Face in 1981, "is to destroy the word conformity." Could there be a better reason?April 1-July 11.
