Westwood started to sell her designs in her husband’s shop “Let it Rock” in1971. When the Sex Pistols, the English Punk Rock band formed in London in 1975, wore the designs from the shop of Westwood, Punk style started to become popular!

  Westwood has very significant impact on changing the fashion and this can still be seen today, her shocking designs were very influencial and were the best proofs of her work. Westwood is widely known asa political activist and this reflects in her designs.
In 1992, Westwood was awarded an OBE, which she collected from Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace
