She was born  in the village of Tintwistle, Derbyshire, on 8 April 1941,he daughter of Gordon Swire and Dora Swire (née Ball), who had married two years previously, two weeks after World War II ended.  at the time of the birth of Vivienne, his father worked as a clerk at an aircraft factory, he previously worked as a greengrocer.

Aged 17, Vivienne and her family moved to Harrow, London. She studied at the Harrow School of Art - University of Westminster, taking fashion and silversmithing, but she left after one term saying, "I didn't know how a working-class girl like me could possibly make a living in the art world". After taking up a job in a factory and studying at a teacher-training college, she became a primary school teacher During this period, she also created her own jewelry, which she would sell at a stall on Portobello Road.

Punk era

Westwood was deeply interested in the punk fashion phenomenon of the 1970s, saying "I was messianic about punk, seeing if one could put a spoke in the system in some way". The "punk style" included BDSM fashion, bondage gear, safety pins, razor blades, bicycle or lavatory chains on clothing and spiked dog collars for jewellery, as well as outrageous make-up and hair. 

Essential design elements include the adoption of traditional elements of Scottish design such as tartan fabric. Amongst the more unusual elements of her style is the use of historical 17th and 18th century cloth cutting principles, and reinterpreting these in, for instance, radical cutting lines to men's trousers. Use of these traditional elements make the overall effect of her designs more shocking.

A girl come from village becoming a world fashion designer which is lifting punk fashion into high fashion world. What an Inspiration...
