Vivian Westwood reflecting on her punk past

Vivian Westwood, punky fasion designer:

I don't believe there is a crusade to be waged by wearing clothes. You just become the token rebel who persuades everyone they are living in a free society. Society tolerates its rebels because it absorbs them into its consumer society. You become part of the marketing. Everything comes with a label."

Tell this to your kids when they start dressing like fools and dying their hair blue to 'express their individuality,' not that they'll listen to you. Vivian Westwood has an exhibition at the V&A museum in London right now.
