The home of Dame Vivienne Westwood has been covered in tributes left by fans after her death aged 81.

Dame Vivienne was a world-renowned fashion designer, and worked with some of the biggest celebrities in the world throughout her decorated career.

It was announced on Thursday that the iconic designer had died, with a statement announcing she did so ‘peacefully’ and surrounded by her family.

Naturally, tributes began pouring in for the acclaimed artist, from fans, friends and clients – including the likes of David Beckham and Boy George.

Now fans have flocked to her home in Clapham, South London, to leave flowers, cards and notes for the late Dame Vivienne and her family.

Photographs taken of the star’s London home see pink roses entwined on the gates, along with decorations made from safety pins, a nod to her career in fashion.

Likewise, a white shirt was seen hanging up on the gates, and several bouqets of flowers were left on the wall.

Candles and house plants also adorned the steps outside Westwood’s home, while the flowers ranged from roses to tulips and everything in between, all the colours of the rainbow.

The gates to the home remained closed on the day following Dame Vivienne’s death, with fans respecting the family’s privacy by leaving their gifts outside.

‘We have been working until the end and she has given me plenty of things to get on with. Thank you darling.’

Celebrities who have commissioned Dame Vivienne’s work over the years include Dita Von Teese, who wore a purple gown from the designer when she married Marilyn Manson in 2005, and the various dresses Princess Beatrice wore during Prince William and Kate’s Royal wedding weekend in 2011.
