Concept of Vivienne Westwood in 70s

Concept of Punk and Rock n Roll in 1970s



Vivienne Westwood opened a first store named "Let It Rock" ( later change to called Sex)in OCt of 1971. It put "sex","symbol of communism" and "battle cry slogan" mixed into Fashion and create a new slogan called "Clothes For the Heroes".So, there get a big hit in Punk.

- Anarchy in the UK
- rare live at sweden 1977
-Rock n Roll

Anti - Government!!!
Anti - Rules !!
Anti - morals !!

In the early 20th century, anarcho-syndicalism arose as a distinct school of thought within anarchism.With greater focus on the labour movement than previous forms of anarchism, syndicalism posits radical trade unions as a potential force for revolutionary social change, replacing capitalism and the state with a new society, democraticallyself-managed by the workers.
