As fashion icons go, you can't get much more iconic than Dame Vivienne Westwood. When she exploded onto the scene in the 1970s her visionary embrace of punk fashion (safety pins, bondage gear and spiked collars) and love of tartan gave her designs an unequivocal Westwood stamp. Always politically engaged, the three-times British Designer of the Year has become an outspoken civil rights and climate change activist. Filmmakers Jean-Marie and Letmiya Sztalryd gain behind-the-scenes access to this famous and surprisingly softly-spoken, gentle woman to learn how she works and what makes her tick. Tickets available from CCA on the day. Part of Glasgow Film Festival 2012: Fashion in Film.
