Label 'Vivienne/Westwood/MadE in England' with globe and crown trademark, yellow on red Label text: In the early 1980s Vivienne Westwood began to study archive costume collections and to use features of historic costume in her work. Her 'Mini-Crini' collection was indluenced by crinolines of the 1800s. In this outfit she has produced an almost exact copy of a typical corset from the 1700s. The 'Boucher' print and the velvet and gold leggings successfully combine to display the opulence of a past time, while using contemporary fabrics.
