Vivienne Westwood’s retrospective opens this week in Italy at Milan’s Palazzo Reale, three years after it took London’s Victoria & Albert Museum by storm. The exhibition, curated by Claire Wilcox in conjunction with architect Azman Owens and design group Holmes Wood, is the largest-ever dedicated to a British fashion designer. Graphics for the Milan show have been created by Angela Scatigna. Promoted by the Italian Assessorato alla Cultura, the exhibition will feature work selected from the V&A’s collections, as well as Westwood’s personal archive (DW 1 April 2004). It runs until 20 January 2008.
