British designer Vivienne Westwood has been a major influence on fashion design from haute couture to ready-to-wear. Westwood's career spans the invention of punk, involving her collaboration with Malcolm McLaren, to her collections referencing eighteenth century art and philosophy, and was documented in 'Vivienne Westwood: A Retrospective' at the Victoria and Albert Museum. A member of the Royal College of The Arts, she held a chair as professor of fashion at the University of Vienna from 1989 to 1991 and has since been the Professor of Fashion at Berlin's Hochshule Der Kunste. She was awarded 'British Designer of The Year' in 1990 and 1991. In 1992 she was awarded the Order of the British Empire and received by the Queen, and was made a Dame for services to fashion in 2006. Westwood remains one of Britain's foremost designers who continues to live and work in London.
