About Vivienne Tam

With her flame-colored hair, boundless creative energy, entrepreneurial focus, and pivotal role in dressing the punk rock and New Wave movements, UK fashion designer Vivienne Westwood is one of couture’s most original individualists. Since the 1970s she’s dressed everyone from the Sex Pistols and punk fashionistas to princesses and celebs in her eclectic designs, which over time have drawn inspiration from influences ranging from the 17th century to modern-day bondage gear. In recent years the Vivienne Westwood line has expanded to include women’s and men’s shoes and boots, bridal wear, jewelry, and handbags and accessories that toe the line between irreverent and classic. Scottish tartan fabric, long a Westwood favorite, appears in her diffusion lines Anglomania and Red Label by Vivienne Westwood, as do asymmetrical tulle skirts and lopsided jackets with raw-edged lapels. This past British Designer of the Year also knows how to do straightforward glamour — from red carpet-ready column dresses to romantic and dreamy wedding gowns.

Vivienne Tam - 02/05/2008

Twenty five years ago, the Canton born, Hong Kong raised Tam launched her first collection in New York under the label East Wind Code. However, it wasn’t until 1994 that she presented her first namesake line of hip but affordable “China chic,” Westernized fashion. She followed with her Mao and Buddha collections which featured cheeky silk-screens of the two icons on stretch nylon basics, and created instant industry buzz. The success of these early lines garnered Tam a huge following and allowed her to open boutiques from L.A. to Tokyo while placing her pieces in top stores. Tam’s signature East meets West aesthetic has fostered rave runway reviews and is the secret to her ubiquitous appeal. Her fashions are represented in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Museum at F.I.T., and the Andy Warhol museum. She has been featured in Vogue, Newsweek, Elle, Harper's Bazaar, Instyle and can now be enjoyed through Gilt Groupe.
