Vivienne Westwood — Punk "Was Just a Marketing Opportunity"

Vivienne Westwood — Punk "Was Just a Marketing Opportunity"

>> Vivienne Westwood, who is so associated with the punk movement and '70s youth culture, says now of that time: "It really was alternative at the time to take S&M and pornography and turn it into fashion. You can't do that anymore. But, when I look back, it was only a look, and it was just a marketing opportunity." She adds: "Now, I don't put any faith in youth. I do to the extent they're always idealistic, but the last lot of them have been brought up to be heavy consumers." [WSJ]
