The SCAD Museum of Art has opened a new exhibition that displays the highlights of Vivienne Westwood's fashion designs against a backdrop of old master paintings from the museum's collection, including works by William Hogarth, Anthony Van Dyck, and Thomas Gainsborough.

The exhibition “Vivienne Westwood, Dress Up Story – 1990 Until Now" offers a glimpse into the creative process of Westwood, famous for her provocative and irreverent designs which take inspiration from a range of historical periods, citing everything from the French Revolution to anti-Thatcherism punk.
