#ParisFashionWeek’14: Vivienne Westwood, Tribal Brides


It may have been Paris Fashion Week, but thanks to Vivienne Westwood there was a mixture of cultures seen on the runway. From first glance, the looks that were displayed gave a mix of African and Asian cultures with a twist of Alice in Wonderland. But, in all actuality, the collection was inspired by the Peruvian clan known as the Ashaninka Tribe. Head pieces and other tribal like accessories lead to that deduction. The show opened with many street style and dashiki like looks. But the highlight of the show would be just over the halfway point. During this segment of the show Vivienne Westwood prevailed a series of what I would like to think of as abstract dinner and wedding dresses. I would be absolutely hype if I would be able to attend a wedding and see a bride or bridesmaid walk down the aisle in one of those dresses. Westwood made David’s Bridal look like Babies r Us with her weeding style dresses. Aside from the dresses it wouldn’t be a proper Vivienne Westwood show if it didn’t have the “Pharrell Famous” top hats. Westwood may be holding “Bigger is Better” for her hat line but in this case I must agree. So with that being said, hats of to Vivienne Westwood for one amazing show.
