Vivienne Westwood

It seems that recently fighting climate change and couture fashion go hand in hand in the eyes of best british designer Vivienne Westwood. In her recent Ready-to-wear 2013 collection, Westwood strode onto the catwalk sporting a T shirt with the slogan "Climate Revolution" splattered across the bright oversized T-shirt, this fashion statement has been "the talk of the town" during the busiest time on the fashion calendar, this revolutionary designer has been taking risks and making statements since she fist opened her store on Kings Road in 1971 called "Let it Rock". You may think how can a fashion designer promote fighting climate change when it is such a throw away business? Fashion is so disposable. However Westwood has always lived by the ethos that if you don't need it, don't buy it. She uses her designs as a statement as most famous artists do, she sees fashion as art and believes that it is her most powerful tool so uses it to promote her beliefs and start this campaign to stop climate change, which has been a personal interest of hers for a very long time. 

This collection features beautifully bright colours and brings out the baroque trend, appearing like fantastical costume in royal colours and beautiful embellishment, these pieces are definitely fabulously artistic.
