Vivienne Westwood Cardiff Launch

The iconic British fashion designer Vivienne Westwood has opened her first store in Welsh capital Cardiff. It's been open for a couple of weeks now but I was lucky enough to be invited to the official launch last night. The store is located in St David’s Centre opposite John Lewis. The shop hosts all Westwood’s collections and is the main destination for Viv fans in Wales and the South West.

I got to see all of Westwood’s avant-garde designs including the Gold, Red & Man Label collections, Anglomania, Anglomania and Lee Jeans and Red Carpet evening wear dresses, as well as all accessories, shoes and bags all in the flesh, in Wales for the first time. As a big Vivienne Westwood fan this was pretty exciting. I was also far too excited about the invitation which was heavy and embossed, love good stationery!

How gorgeous is this model and the dress she is in? perfection! she also gave me a cheeky little wink after I took this photo, I think this means she wants to marry me, she can even wear that dress to the wedding if she wants to... There were lots of models in the store who posed on little podiums showcasing the Vivienne Westwood designs. There were plenty of outfit changes but this dress really caught my eye.

It was lovely to hang out with some fellow South Wales bloggers and drink too much bubbly, don't see these girls often enough. I love the store but I think it is going to lead to my eventual ruin, got some many things on a wishlist that are crazy prices.

  2. I love Vivienne Westwood, I've never owned anything from her line but I've always admired it online. I don't think I know of a Vivienne Westwood store anywhere near me either :\ I love the dress on the model and she is beautiful, she has amazing hair. I love that photo of you as well, it is no wonder why she winked at you :)
