Vivienne Westwood 'Donut' photograph could sell for £15,000

A photographic commission for Vivienne Westwood's 1994-95 On Liberty collection by Dutch duo Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin will auction at Bonhams on May 20.

Entitled Donut, Kym, for Vivienne Westwood, 1994, the image was used in a calendar and advertising campaign.

It will appear at Bonhams, London, with an estimate of £12,000-15,000.

The sale - organised by Bonhams' new photography department - will also feature three images by the leading American fashion photographer Lillian Bassman.
