When I was at university in Auckland I studied designer Vivienne Westwood and related her theatrical fashion bravado to the spaces I was then designing. She is by far my favourite designer and it is a joy being enveloped in a city I believe she has helped to shape. In London she’s become less of the mystical being I read about it in books, as I now see her on occasion riding her wee bicycle through Battersea. Small interactions but a joy none-the-less. She doesn’t take herself too seriously which I find fascinating in light of her status – and this I admire.
