Dame Vivienne Westwood, often known as the “high priestess of punk,” passed away this Thursday, leaving the fashion community to mourn the loss of a maverick.

The British designer took the world by storm in the 1970s with her radical approach to urban street style, giving rise to the punk movement and provocative looks that are still remembered and referenced to this day. She dressed the Sex Pistols, received an OBE from Queen Elizabeth, won British Designer of the Year two years in a row and launched multiple labels that earned international acclaim and continue to garner fans.
