This week I am joined by by Andreas Kronthaler the designer, otherwise known as Vivienne Westwood’s husband. Andreas talks to me about transforming the story of sex, fun and punk into a thoughtful and successful brand. It now has a goal of activism, sustainability and a mission to persuade people to shop wisely and consciously. What did Andreas bring from his Austrian roots? Was he inspired to study jewellery from the influence of his blacksmith father? And how did he move from jewellery to fashion? Andreas - usually leaving the talking to Vivienne - reveals unexpected details of the Westwood tale we thought we knew so well.
