Style Icon Westwood designs for Viennese NY’s Concert

Posted on | December 18, 2013

She was the epitome of punk in the 70s. With the use of leather and safety pins, she has not only revolutionized the fashion standard of the British nation, but also propagated a new way of life. Today, Westwood promotes conservative middle class values ​​and is committed to education, classical art and nature protection. What has remained to this day though, is her socio-critical and revolutionary behavior.

Austrian fashionistas were thrilled to learn that Westwood…

…was invited to design the ballet costumes for the famous New Year’s Concert 2014. Together with her Tyrolean husband Andreas Kronthaler, Westwood has created elegant gowns for the ballet sequences to Lanner’s waltzes and plaid for the polka. “I am a big fan of classical ballet. No other dance expresses the beauty of the human species as well as ballet.” Westwood said in a TV interview. The adorable costumes in tartan, described by Westwood as a romantic Victorian invention will trigger a new Westwood fashion boom. For sure.
