Vivienne Westwood designs new Brit Awards Statuette

13 Jan

As part of the biggest overhaul of the Brit awards since its inception, a new statuette was unveiled today.

Created by the influential British designer Vivienne Westwood, godmother of punk and grande dame of the UK fashion scene, it features a vintage-style union flag draped around the traditional statue, which wears a bronze helmet embossed with the Westwood logo.

Organisers of the awards have created a “blank canvas” trophy that will be restyled each year by leading British creative individuals.

The new chairman of the awards and CEO of Universal Music in the UK, David Joseph, said: “Vivienne stands for all the things we want to inspire in tomorrow’s generation of artists. She continues to be unique, innovative, not to mention massively inspired by music and vice versa. We are honoured she accepted our offer of designing 2011’s trophy.”
