Malcolm Mclaren was a major force behind the punk sound that emerged from London in the mid 1970’s . While it can be disputed whether or not it was Mclaren who came up with the concept for his proteges’ band, the Sex Pistols or if it was the band members themselves, i.e., Johnny Rotten and Sid Vicious, no one can dispute that it was his wife Vivienne Westwood who actually created and sewed the looks that the band wore. By studying the fashions of Londons’ seedier occupants like bikers and sex workers,Westwood and her husband McClaren conceptualized the new deconstructionist fashion phenomenon known as the “punk look”.
