Photo Gallery: A Personal Collection of Vivienne Westwood Shoes, York Castle Museum
This collection of shoes by Vivienne Westwood, who is best known as the creator of punk and new wave fashions at the Sex boutique in the 1970s along with Malcolm McLaren, spans the decades from the 1970s. The black spike SEX shoe, the hammerhead shoe, pirate boots, the limited edition collection with Nine West and the recent mass market collaboration with the Brazilian company Melissa, clearly demonstrates that she remains the undisputed Queen of British fashion.
