Meet Andreas Kronthaler, he is the husband of Vivianne Westwood, who was a renowned British fashion designer known for her bold and daring designs. She was widely considered to be one of the most influential figures in the fashion industry, introducing punk and new wave style to the world of high-end couture. Born in Tintwistle, Cheshire in 1941, she was originally a primary school teacher before taking up fashion design as a career.

Since her first foray into the fashion world in 1971, Vivienne Westwood became an icon within the industry. She began creating provocative clothing with partner Malcolm McLaren at their now-famous London boutique ‘SEX’, which they opened in 1974. During this time, she developed her signature style of mixing traditional English tailoring with punk influences. With the release of her first solo collection in 1981, Vivienne Westwood established herself as a major figure in international fashion circles and gained considerable attention from critics and buyers alike.

Her designs have been worn by celebrities including Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Angelina Jolie, and Madonna.

More recently, Vivienne Westwood has seen immense success with her expansion into menswear and Andreas Kronthaler collections which feature both classic tailoring styles along with more modern silhouettes for men and women respectively. Andreas Kronthaler is Vivienne Westwood’s long-term partner and husband who also serves as creative director for all menswear collections since 1994; Andreas’ influence on Vivienne’s designs can be seen in his signature use of color pops and bright prints on classic shapes for men such as trousers, coats and shirts.

Ben Westwood is an erotic photographer.

“I wanted to do it because I found it really erotic and interesting. Where it comes from, or why, I don’t know. I’m no more obsessed with sex in my day-to-day life than anyone else. I don’t have any more sex than other people. The reason I decided to make [pornographic] photography a career was to stand up for it. I realized that these things had a stigma attached. I’m not doing anything wrong. It doesn’t make me into a murderer or a person that harms other people.”
