Chic Report: Vivienne Westwood has been showing in Paris for the last decade or so, but her Thursday return to the London stage--and a stage it was--was a welcome homecoming indeed. The crowd at the mail-sorting facility near Oxford Circus, where she showed, went aroar when Dame Westwood sent out her habitually high-octane fashions. It was an array of theatrical, anarchic young ladies in body-hugging dresses, tartan kits, silk jersey knits, coats with rounded lapels, and massive ginger hair that curiously resembled Westwood herself. It all began with a boutique on the King's Road, and judging by the ecstatic standing ovation, the end of the reign of Westwood is nowhere in sight.
