London, England (CNS) – Fashion designer Dame Vivienne Westwood is set to conquer the music industry by launching her first ever compilation album, Catwalk Breakdown.
No, the album won’t be displaying her singing voice in any way. The album, which she personally conceptualized, compiled and art-directed, will feature 16 of her favorite songs, as per vogue.co.uk.
She says, “My clothes always tell a story. It may refer to the past, but it’s always projected into this heroic future. And I choose the music accordingly.”
“Sometimes the music can just be sexy, it can let you relax, look at the clothes, put people into a fantastic mood. Then it might just have to swing back and lift you up to the final triumph of the fashion show.”
“These are some of the pieces that I’ve relied on over all these years – my classics. They’ve never failed me.”
Released by Mercury Records, the compilation will be out on September 15. It will have an exclusive launch event at Selfridges’ Oxford Street store.
