Vivienne Westwood, a pioneer in the fashion industry since 1971, will design the show entrance at Decorex, the annual leading UK design and interior show to be held at the Royal Hospital in Chelsea September 23-26.
She is not only considered as a symbol of the British avant-garde, but also one of the most influential and recognized designers in the world today. She is known for clothes and accessories that are both seductive and feminine, elegant yet powerful, which often reference historical costumes.

Westwood joins a stellar line-up of well-known designers who have set the opening scene to the show, now in its 35th year, and who over the years have created inimitable and show stopping entrances.
In this anniversary year, Decorex International has decided to use this milestone as an opportunity to look back at the show’s matchless heritage and the resurgence of design over the past 35 years, and to honor key iconic moments and showcase major design pieces while acknowledging incredible people and influences that the industry has brought to life.
