EM & Co Celebrates Vivienne Westwood With Trunk Show and Sale

Trunk Show Event Features "Sex and the City" Wedding Gown and Preview of Vivienne Westwood Spring '09 "Anglomania" Collection

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - November 19, 2008) - On November 20, 2008, EM & Co will host the only Los Angeles area preview of Vivienne Westwood's "Anglomania" Spring '09 Collection, with a special Designer Showcase & Trunk Show. The wedding gown worn by Sarah Jessica Parker's character, Carrie Bradshaw, in the "Sex and the City" movie will be featured during the event, as well as the latest work of L.A. celebrity painter, Biagio Black, a commissioned portrait of the fashion icon herself, Vivienne Westwood.

The "Carrie" wedding gown, part of the Vivienne Westwood 'Gold Label' Couture collection, will be housed at EM & Co November 13 through November 21. Only a limited number of replicas of this gown will ever be created, and a representative from Vivienne Westwood will be available to take guests' measurements for special custom orders of the gown during the event.

DJ Jasepi will spin his fashionable tunes while models showcase select styles from the Spring '09 Collection. The November 20 invitation-only event will be attended by an exclusive group of maximum 200 guests, which include celebrity stylists, film industry executives, VIP customers, and celebrities. During the event, guests will be able to pre-order pieces from the spring/summer '09 collection at preferred pricing.

EM & Co continues the Vivienne Westwood celebration through the end of November, by offering its customers a discount on the current fall '08 collection. "We want to share our appreciation for Vivienne Westwood with our customers and hope they will appreciate the timelessness of her pieces," says EM & Co owner, Eveline Morel.

The Trunk Show event on November 20, sponsored in part by Modern Luxury's Angeleno Magazine, will feature an Absinthe Bar from Mata Hari Absinthe Bohemian, Vodka cocktails from Marani Premium Vodka, and appetizers from Tasca Wine Bar.

ABOUT Vivienne Westwood:

Vivienne Westwood is both iconoclast and global icon. In the 1970s, she electrified the world with the launch of punk fashion and went on to become one of the most inventive and influential designers of our time. Known best for her willingness to take risks and to disregard conventions, she also has a profound respect for the past and such elements as corsets and crinolines, which she reinvents in new ways. A major influence on fashion design, her career has ranged from street wear and haute couture to ready-to-wear; from outfits that she designed in the 1970s for the Sex Pistols, the corsetry and ball gowns of the 1980s and 1990s, and the innovative pattern cutting of the most recent years.
