Vivienne Westwood - Why I Love the Wallace



Vivienne Westwood - public/private value
Rightly so, these days much is made of the linkages between the culture/heritage sector and our old friend, 'the creative sector', and then it's but a hop and a stitch to the interplay between public and private value.

Iconic British fashion designer Vivienne Westwood brings all this into play in this lovely video where she talks about her love for the Wallace Collection and how it has inspired her work over the years.

The Wallace Collection
The Wallace Collection is a national museum which displays the works of art collected in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries by the first four Marquesses of Hertford and Sir Richard Wallace, the son of the 4th Marquess. It was bequeathed to the British nation by Sir Richard's widow, Lady Wallace, in 1897.

"making people discover" ... interesting concept.

And here in rural broadband land I was able to downlaod and watch in one stream... why can't they all be like that - interesting timing given today's piece in The Press on options for CHCH fibre network.... just one would do me out here!
